Sunil alias Sonna murders Anil in Begur: Affair by married Sunil with Anil's relative led to rowdy's killing
Bangalore: It was an affair with a woman and a fight for supremacy among rowdy-sheeters that led to the June 20 murder of rowdy Anil Kumar in Electronics City, police said on Tuesday, while announcing the arrest of five persons.
Police said the arrested five were associates of a rowdy-sheeter JCB Narayana. They allegedly murdered Anil Kumar, 32, a resident of Begur, on Huskur Road.
Identifying the accused as Sunil alias Ambrose, 28, Sunil alias Sonna, 20, Santosh alias Gallata, 21, Oskar alias Dosa, 20, and Anand alias Kumbara, 20, police said Ambrose had been carrying on an affair with a woman relative of Anil.
Ambrose and Anil were friends, but the affair caused bitterness. The two were also at loggerheads as both claimed the supremacy of the gang.
Police said the gang followed Anil's car in another vehicle from Korthi Gate and intercepted him at sixth mile on Kallu Road. They blinded him with chilli powder and hacked him to death around 3.45 pm.
Anil had been facing criminal charges, and was accused of two murders.
He was also accused in two robberies in Electronics City.
Ambrose was involved in at least three murder cases and two robberies. The cases were registered in Sarjapura, Hebbagodi, Attibele, Parappana Agrahara and Electronics City police stations. The others in the gang were petty criminals.
