Welder convicted of murdering 14-year-old
The City Civil and Sessions court, on Wednesday, convicted a 24-year-old youth for abducting a 14-year-old boy and murdering him to take revenge on his family, who were his neighbours in Chandra Layout, in 2015. The quantum of the sentence will be pronounced on Thursday.
On February 4, 2015, Kiran Yadav, an eighth standard student of Sri Chaitanya Techno School, went missing after he was dropped by his school bus near his house.
Victim was a neighbour
“Manjunath (the accused), who was Kiran’s neighbour, told him that his younger brother Tilak had met with an accident and was hospitalised. He said that his family members were in the hospital. He offered to drop him at the hospital, and Kiran agreed,” a senior police officer said.
Kiran’s parents had lodged a missing complaint with the police the same day. There was no sign of Kiran until February 10 when Chandra Layout Inspector Sudharshan stumbled on CCTV footage of Manjunath taking Kiran on his bike. The police questioned Manjunath. He claimed to have murdered the boy and dumped his body in a drain at an isolated spot in Bangalore University (BU) campus.
Body found after a week
The highly decomposed body was found on February 11. Kiran’s belongings, and the blade that was used to kill him was retrieved.
Doctors of Victoria Hospital submitted his observations on the wounds on the body and those on the hands of the accused.
“Manjunath killed the boy to take revenge on his mother Pramila, as he was having an illicit affair with a married woman who was his tenant. Manjunath suspected Pramila of spreading the news in the neighbourhood about the affair,” the officer said.
Manjunath was convicted for kidnap, murder and destruction of evidence
MAN CONVICTED OF KILLING TEEN FOR REVENGE
The Chandra Layout police had filed a chargesheet against Manjunath with the available evidence and, after hearing the case, the court announced that it has been provided that Manjunath has killed Yadav. The court said the punishment period will be announced on December 21.
Then 14-year-old, Yadav was returning from school when he was abducted by Manjunath who killed him and disposed the body in Jnanabarathi.
Manjunath was angry with Yadav’s mother Prameela for telling his mother about his alleged affair with a married woman in the neighbourhood.
On February 4, when Yadav got down from his school van, Manjunath gave Yadav a ride on his motorcycle. In the evening, Yadav’s parents went out searching for him when he did not come home.
They suspected Manjunath but, after initial enquiry, the police set Manjunath free saying that the parents’ allegations were not backed by any evidence.
Refusing to give up so easily, Yadav’s father played a detective and checked the CCTV footage of the shop where the school van had dropped Yadav. He found that Manjunath took Yadav on his motorcycle and informed the police.
Manjunath was once again detained by the police and soon spilled the beans. He confessed to have disposed Yadav’s body at an isolated place in the Jnanabarathi campus. The body was recovered later. Manjunath had slit the throat of Yadav with a shaving blade.
The police investigation confirmed that Manjunath, who was a neighbour of Yadav, was having an affair with a woman from the neighbourhood.
Yadav’s mother, Prameela, had caught the couple and had told Manjunath’s mother about it. Unhappy with this, Manjunath decided to take revenge by killing Yadav.

Tenant held for Salt Lake murder
TNN | Dec 16, 2017
KOLKATA: A tenant of the 61-year-old retired engineer who was brutally murdered in his Salt Lake home on Thursday, was arrested in the early hours on Friday. Police said Sanjay Agarwal has confessed to killing Avijit Nag Chowdhuryout of revenge after he had humiliated him in public for not repaying a loan of Rs 42,000 and allegedly chasing him out of the house with a chopper last week. He will be produced in a Salt Lake court on Saturday.
Police said Agarwal was the one who had called up Chowdhury’s family in Shyambazar on Thursday morning to say that Chowdhury was not opening the door and his cellphone was switched off. He, however, had refused to come to the house or accompany the family to the police station – which raised cops’ suspicion and after hours of interrogation, he allegedly broke down and confessed.
“The man has confessed to killing Chowdhury out of revenge. He says he was upset and humiliated by how Chowdhury had treated him. However, we are still questioning him to ascertain why he killed the man in such a gruesome manner,” said S Rajkumar, the deputy commissioner (detective department) on Bidhannagar City Police.
Chowdhury, who lived alone, was found with his throat and wrists cut and slash marks in his private parts inside his Salt Lake home on Thursday.
Cops said Agarwal, 40, a resident of CF Block, had rented the garage of the house in BD Block to run a godown-cum-office for his electrical parts’ business. He recently had multiple altercations with Chowdhury over some money that Agarwal allegedly owed to him. During one such altercation last week, Chowdhury allegedly abused Agarwal on the road and chased him out of the office with a chopper. Since then, he hadn’t allowed Agarwal to come to the office.
Police said on Wednesday, Agarwal parked his car in an adjacent alley and walked into the house using a duplicate key around 8pm with an intention to kill Chowdhury with a chopper. “He went inside, but found Chowdhury absent. He called the domestic help to enquire when Chowdhury was to return. As Agarwal was leaving, Chowdhury entered the house with a bottle of whisky. Agarwal hid in the staircase landing and attacked him when Chowdhury came up,” said an officer.
Police said after the murder, Agarwal went to the garage, changed his shirt and left the place with the bloodied clothes and the murder weapon in a bag. The next day, he came back to the house to ensure Chowdhury was dead and then called up his family. “The suspicion fell on Agarwal from the statements of his children and the maid. When we called Agarwal, he avoided us. We brought him to the police station later in the night and grilled him for several hours. After that, he admitted to the crime,” said an officer.
The brutality of the murder has shocked cops, family members and psychiatrists. “Our society is witnessing brutality at every step these days with so many brutal viral videos being shared over social media. In this case, the castration can be a symbolic representation in the psyche of the assailant to disempower and humiliate the victim,” said psychiatrist Anuttama Banerjee.

Krishna’s followers killed Satyam in November 2015, and were allegedly tracking the movements of his brother to take revenge since then, said Police Commissioner D. Gautam Sawang, while giving the details of the murder case at a press conference here on Friday.
The accused, G. Surendra, G. Balaiah, A. Sudhakar, N. Arun Kumar, S. Pavan Kumar, K. Lakshmaiah, T. Nagaraju and D. Vajrala Babu, all natives of Tenali, took shelter in the house of Md. Galib in Vijayawada, and did ‘recce’ several times before they executed their plan.
“They managed to get six SIM cards by submitting false addresses, purchased six new sickles, visited Tirumala temple and got their heads tonsured to escape from being identified. The accused came to the city on three bikes on December 6, and hacked Subramanyam to death while he was having tea at Machavaram down area,” Mr. Sawang said.
Later, the gang abandoned the vehicles at different places, threw the sickles and escaped to Guntur. The movements of the accused were captured in 50 CCTVs at different junctions in Guntur and Vijayawada, the Commissioner said.
Surendra’s wife is a councillor of YSR Congress Party and the gang members were followers of the same party. Police will file a petition in the court seeking custody of the accused for further investigation, he said
Joint Commissioner of Police B.V. Ramana Kumar, DCP Ghajarao Bhupal and Assistant Commissioner of Police N. Satyanandam were present.
