Hassan: A nine-month-old murder case of a beggar was successfully solved by the city police after arresting three people.

The arrested are identified as Srikanth, (26), Mohan, (29), and Chetan, (29).

The murder had taken place nine months ago, however, the investigation did not proceed until S. Siddarameshwara, Belur CPI received a call from the informant from Lakya village in Chikkamagaluru taluk recently. The caller said that a group of three persons had killed a beggar, whose identity is yet to be ascertained, in the village over a petty issue.

It is gathered that the trio, who were in an inebriated condition, picked up a quarrel with the beggar at Lakya.

They assaulted him and in retaliation, the beggar bit Srikanth’s hand and ran away.

Later, the three caught the beggar and killed him by hitting him with sticks. To avoid getting caught, they threw the body near Arakere after burning it. A half-burnt dead body was found near Arekere near Banavara on January 6 this year.
