Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: Two persons on a motorcycle threw chilli powder at a man and robbed him of a cellphone worth Rs. 15,000 in J.C. Nagar police station limits on Tuesday night.

The police said Bipin B. John was at a roadside eatery on Nandidurga Road around 9.30 p.m. when the incident occurred.

Bipin, a BBM graduate, is learning German at an institute here, and lives in a flat in an apartment complex on Benson Town Cross, the police said.

The J.C. Nagar police have registered a case in this regard.

In another incident on Tuesday, two men on a motorcycle threw chilli powder at George, a college student, and robbed him of his cellphone worth Rs. 10,000. He was talking on the cellphone on Nandidurg Road.

A complaint has been registered at the J.C. Nagar police station.

Murder accused held

The Byatarayanapura police have arrested Yatish (21), an employee of a petrol bunk and resident of Srinagar, on the charge of murdering a woman.

Lakshmi (22), mother of a two-and-a-half-year-old boy, was found murdered with her throat slit at her house in Avalahalli on July 1.

The police said that during investigation, they found that Yatish, a friend of Lakshmi's brother Chenne Gowda, had allegedly made advances at her.

On July 1, Yatish went to Lakshmi's house. When she resisted his advances and said she would inform her family, he allegedly murdered her, the police said.

Yatish was arrested from his native place, Hunuganahalli in Mandya district.

Five held on kidnapping charge

A special police team led by the Deputy Commissioner of Police (West), K.V. Sharathchandra, has arrested five people who allegedly kidnapped the owner of a lottery tickets agency.

The accused had taken Nagaraj, who runs a lottery ticket agency in Chickpet, to Changam in Thiruvannamalai district in Tamil Nadu, the police said.

They released Nagaraj after obtaining a ransom of Rs. 2.55 lakhs and some prize-winning lottery tickets, they added.

The names of those arrested were given as Rajan (18), Naveen (19), Suresh (21), Mahendra (18), all residents of Mysore Road, and Shashi Kumar (23) of Muthanur in Changam taluk.

Three others accused in the case — Shiva, Manjunath and Maran — are at large, the police added.
