Vijayapura: A man who jumped into river Krishna, fearing the cops posted at the checkposts lost his life.
The incident took place on Monday at Muddebihal of Vijayapur.
The deceased has been identified as Mallappa Ningappa Bommanagi, a resident of Hullalli of Hunagund taluk.
It is said that Mallappa had gone to visit his wife in Saroor village in Muddebihal taluk.
He could not resturn home due to the crackdown measures taken in wake of the COVID-19 crisis.
However, an adamant Mallappa left Saroor, but when he neared a checkpost, he decided to plunge into river Krishna and swim rather than facing the cops.
Unable to swim, Mallappa lost his life.
