Yeshwantpur police have arrested a man in connection with the death of a 31-year-old man, which was initially registered as a case of unnatural death.

The deceased Prateek Yadav, 31, a resident of Divanarapalya near Yeshwantpur had died on October 20 night at a hospital in Hebbal where he was admitted after complaining of severe pain.

His post-mortem report read, “Death occurred due to head injury sustained to be investigated on the lines of homicide. However, final opinion reserved pending for want of chemical analysis report (sic).”

While investigating the case police discovered that Pratik had sustained the head injury, which led to his death eventually during a fight with one of his acquaintances.

According to the police, on October 17 Prateek, who was in an inebriated condition had visited a meat store run by his acquaintance Suresh. At the stall, Prateek asked Sameesh, a Kerala native who worked at the store to lend him Rs 100 to buy alcohol. As Sameesh refused to oblige, Prateek began abusing him and the former retaliated by hitting him on the head with a one-kilogram cast iron weight.

Suresh intervened to control the situation and asked one of Yadav’s friends named Subramani to take him to the hospital. Prateek told doctors that he had met with an accident and asked Subramani to maintain his version of the incident. After the treatment, Prateek went home with Subramani.

As his pain did not subside the next day, his younger brother, Nikhil, took him to Nimhans where doctors asked for a scan. But the family returned without getting a scan or treatment. On October 20, Yadav again complained of pain and was rushed to a hospital in Hebbal where he eventually died.

Once the post-mortem report came, Yeshwantpur police transferred the case to Kodigehalli police because the death occurred in the hospital.

During the course of the investigation, police learned about Prateek’s fight with Sameesh, who had taken up a new job as a mason at Anekal. He was arrested from there by the police.
