Puttur: Inebriated man kills younger brother, escapes from spot

Daijiworld Media Network – Puttur (MS)

Puttur, Dec 3: A verbal tussle that ensued over financial matter, between siblings, who were under the influence of alcohol, ended in the murder of younger one by the elder brother at Kemminje on December 1. The elder brother, after killing the younger one, escaped from the spot.

The deceased is identified as Mahadeva (38), a native of Devihosoor village of Haveri district. His elder brother Lingappa is the accused.


Lingappa, Mahadeva, Veerupaksha and others were working as masons in a site that is near Newlife Fellowship Church of Mukrampadi under Kemminje village limits.

On December 1, as usual, after work, they all consumed liquor and returned back to the shed where they lived. Around 8 pm, a verbal duel began between brothers Lingappa and Mahadeva over some financial matter. Mahadeva first hit his Lingappa on his back with hand. Enraged by the behaviour of his younger brother, Lingappa ran out of the shed, brought an iron rod from the work place and hit Mahadeva on the back of his head and continued beating him. Two others who were present at the spot intervened. Lingappa escaped from the spot. Though Mahadeva was taken to Puttur government hospital, he had already died.

A case in this connection is registered in Puttur town police station. Police are on the lookout for Lingappa.

    In my neighbourhood too i see families are broken, children cannot attain their education and moral values are going down just because of this alcohol . Daily wage personnel earn well and they can save too. Work stress much less due to breaks in between for them. And still 99% daily wages people end of the day drink. Something has to be done to stop present scenario ....either educate them or reduce availability of this poison

    Cain killed brother Abel...!! Do you think Cain is in inebriated state but due to jealousy. Killing started from the day one human-beings landed on this earth.

    You can seen H.Almieda there to post only against muslims. You never never see his comments beyond communal contents. I doubt he is posting with his real identity.

    Rolf Dubai,not only hindu brothern but in catholics too this problem exists and other religion too.Only if these people were bit educated and get better jobs may be this problem would be better.Or someone who is engaged to take these people to anonymous alcoholic meeting make them to understand and get away from alcohol would be better.There are people got better and their life is become almost Heaven.Make them understand it is a disease.can be cured.Bit difficult but can .Sad now elder one has to go to jail ,and comes back he will start again .
