Bengaluru: A police informer was brutally murdered by a group of miscreants at Kamalanagar in Basaveshwara Nagar, Bengaluru on Saturday, January 25 night.

The deceased has been identified as Prabhu aka Appu (27).

According to reports, Prabhu was working on a cheque-transaction section of Sri Siddeshwara Co-operative Bank and simultaneously, working as an informer with the police in relation to the theft cases.
