Old rivalry: Rowdy sheeter hacked to death-1

Shivamogga: A 45-year-old rowdy sheeter was hacked to death at Durgigudi on September 11 night at around 10 PM.

The deceased has been identified as Giri alias Market Giri. According to sources, when Giri was plying in his car near Soorya Comfort Hotel, a group of four assailants waylaid the vehicle and dragged him out. Though Giri's associates were accompanying him during the incident, they manage to escape from the hands of miscreants. In the attack, the car also damaged as the miscreants smashed the windshields. Old rivalry is said to be the reason behind this murder.

It is said that Giri was in jail as several cases against him are pending. However, he succeeded in coming out of the jail after securing bail, just a month ago. Doddapete Police have registered a case and are investigating.
