AdvertisementLocals alerted the police about the suspicious activity. A stranger speaking in Malayalam, a mixture of Kannada and Tamil, reportedly approached a local asking for food. When the local said that his home was far away, the person fled from the spot. It is alleged that the suspect had a weapon wrapped in cloth.
