Youth killed by friend for Rs 50 in Karnataka

Bengaluru, Jun 22 (IANS): In a shocking incident, a 24-year-old youth was killed by his friend for Rs 50 in Basaveshwaranagar police station limits of Bengaluru.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Dr. Sanjeev M. Patil said on Wednesday that the incident took place on Tuesday night and they have launched a hunt for the accused.

The deceased person has been identified as Shivamadu, a resident of Laggere. According to police, the deceased and accused were childhood friends.

Though their houses shifted to separate localities, they met near Kurubarahalli Circle, where they used to meet earlier. The victim worked as an auto driver and the accused was a food delivery boy.

They met along with other friends and played cricket in the evening. After playing cricket they went to a cyber centre at about 8.30 p.m.

The accused at this point took away Rs 50 from the pocket of the victim Shivamadu. Objecting to this, the victim asked him to return the money.

This led to a verbal altercation between the two. Amid the fight, accused Shanthkumar took out a knife which he had brought with him and stabbed the victim twice in his chest, said the police.

The victim collapsed on the spot. Though he was shifted to a hospital, the doctors declared him brought dead.

    A food delivery boy carrying weapon with him, he must be a criminal minded. Companies employing such criminals do not care to check their background as well as do police verification. He is a risk to the society.

    Lmao, you really gotta be kidding now. Did you just swap the situation towards some random political party white it was a matter of just 50 bucks? Well to be honest, one's employment doesn't really have anything to do with the Indian Govt. You earn it based on your own necessities and the requirements at your surrounding and not else's FYI.
