Bengaluru: Businessman found murdered at home

BENGALURU: A 48-year-old real estate agent and a car dealer was brutally hacked to death at his residence in Panchasheela Layout in Vijayanagar police station limits.

The deceased has been identified as Ganesh, a native of Shivamogga, who was residing with his wife and a son in a rented house in Panchsheela Layout.

According to police, on Thursday night, Ganesh’s wife and son Abhishek left for Shivamogga and Ganesh was supposed to join them the next day after finishing a land deal.

When Ganesh did not reach Shivamogga on Saturday, Uma kept calling him on his mobile phone, but did not get any response. A worried Uma then headed for Bengaluru along with her son to check on Ganesh.

Upon reaching the house on Saturday night, Uma found the main door of the house closed from outside, but not locked. When she entered the house, she found Ganesh dead.

Uma then informed the Vijayanagar police, who rushed to the spot and shifted the body to a hospital for post-mortem.

The police said that Ganesh was attacked by unidentified miscreants and they suspect it was due to some financial dispute. The police have registered the case and begun investigation.
