Mysuru, February 2:- An auto driver stabbed a youth for asking him to pay the rent for an auto provided to him at Bannimantap here a couple of days back. The incident took place at HUDCO Layout in Bannimantap. Mudasir and his companions stabbed one Jagadish and escaped.
One carpenter Raju had provided an auto-riskshaw on a rental basis to Mudasir, who is unemployed. He was asked to pay the rent once a week if he could not pay it every day. But Mudasir was not paying the rent properly to the auto owner Srikanth, a merchant at Devaraja market. As Raju was repeatedly asking Mudasir for the money, he went to Raju’s house and had a verbal spat with Raju’s sons Jagadish and Lokesh. Mudasir called his fellow friends to the spot and stabbed Jagadish with a small knife and escaped from the spot.
N R Police has registered a complaint and are searching for the accused Mudasir. (MR/KS).
