The city police will investigate the role of Manja in the sensational murder of Devu that happened in Paduvarahalli two months ago.
Manja who has been sentenced to life for his role in Hunsur double murder case in 2008 is been brought to Mysuru from Hindalga jail in Belagaavi by a team led by Mandi Mohalla Police inspector Talawar.
