Belthangadi: Police nabbed a man, who killed his friend during a scuffle a few days ago near Reshme Road between Guruvyanakere and Gerukatte of Belthangadi taluk.

Pradeep (38), hailing from Banakal in Mudigere taluk, killed his friend Dinesh Poojary (35), a resident of Guruvayanakere, when a fight broke out between them. Incidentally, the deceased, Dinesh Poojary, was staying at one of Pradeep’s close relative’s house at the time.

Dinesh Poojary, a tipper driver by profession, was teasing his friend Pradeep, when the latter bludgeoned the former using a steel rod, in a fit of rage. After Poojary’s condition turned grave, Pradeep, accompanied by a friend named Harish rushed him to a nearby private hospital.

They finally succeeded in admitting the injured Dinesh Poojary at a government hospital in Belthangadi.

On hearing the news of his friend’s death, Pradeep fled the spot and was absconding till Belthangadi police took him into their custody at Banakal on November 25.

The Belthangadi police have registered a case in connection with the incident.
