Minor amount takes away life

Apparently, Shreemathi had given a loan of Rs 1 lakh to Jonas who had paid back Rs 40,000 but had failed to pay back the remaining Rs 60,000. Since he did not receive her calls, the victim went personally to his house to confront him and in her bid to recovery her money, lost her life.

Investigation so far has revealed that the accused used to run a food mobile restaurant at Nandigudda on a Maruti Omni van. The food provided here was prepared by a north Indian cook and he was pretty good at his job. However, the man left to his hometown 6 weeks back and failed to return and hence Jonas started facing losses as he was not as good a cook as the previous cook. Eventually, Jonas was compelled to close his food joint due to acute financial distress.
