Murdered using knives

The four accused, who were already incarcerated in connection to their crimes used to manhandle other inmates of the jail. This was objected by Vinod Shettigar. This in turn had led to a fight within the jail. On Jan 14th 2011 at around 8 am in the morning, Vinod who was sitting outside the 1st barracks of the prison was attacked by with knives by the accused. The staffs that came to stop this were also attacked. The attack killed Vinod on the spot. The then Brahmavar police Inspector Krishna Murthy investigated the case and submitted the charge sheet to the court.

The First District and Sessions Court Judge C M Joshi found the accused guilty of their crimes. The quantum of punishment would be pronounced on Thursday March 28. Public prosecutor Shantibai argued on behalf of the prosecution.

Three knives found in the lavatory

A day before the murder, an accused was produced in Karkala Court. On that occasion, 3 knives were planted in the lavatory as decided. While coming back from the court, the accused successfully smuggled the knives into the jail while the jail staff failed to notice it. On that very night, the accused planned the murder.
