A 45-year-old man and his two sons beheaded their landlord when he demanded rent. They buried the head and dumped the torso in a stormwater drain, police said.
Manjunath (38), a moneylender, had rented a plot of land near Nelamangala to Altaf and his sons for running a scrap yard. The family earned well but didnt pay the rent. Manjunath had warned of evicting them.
On January 24, Altaf telephoned Manjunath, saying he wanted to pay the rent, and called him to a spot. Once Manjunath reached there, Altaf and his sons reportedly attacked him with an iron rod. He died on the spot. They then severed his head with an electric saw and buried it in the land. The torso was dumped in a drain in Kengeri.
Meanwhile, Manjunaths wife complained to the police about his disappearance.
The Central Crime Branch (CCB) picked up Altaf and his sons in a separate case of theft. During the course of the investigation, sleuths learnt about the crime. The CCB transferred the case to the jurisdictional Nelamangala police who are now searching for Manjunaths torso in the drain.
