“He (accused Syed Nadeem) was in jail since 12th (August).Last night (he) came to Bowring Hospital with chest pain.Probably some hard object hit on his abdomen,” Pant told PTI.

The violence in D J Halli and adjoining areas on Tuesday night was unleashed by hundreds of people over a purportedly inflammatory social media post allegedly put out by P Naveen, a relative of Pulakeshinagar Congress MLA R Akhanda Srinivasa Murthy.

The MLA”s residence and a police station at D J Halli were torched by rioters who also set many police and private vehicles afire, and looted the belongings of the legislator and his sister.
