Nagedrappa, who had married twice, had transferred his house property to his second wife. Fearing that their father might also transfer other properties to her children, Manjunath and Umesh hatched a plan to kill their father.
The plan was executed when Nagendrappa was returning home after visiting a court in Bhadravati. The accused picked him up in an auto, made him consume a drink laced with sedatives, and later suffocated him to death. They took the body in the same auto and dumped it in the drain.
All five of the accused — Manjunath, Umesh, Rizwan, Habibullah, and Suhail Basha — have been arrested, police said.
Another attempt had failed
Police said the accused had made an attempt to end Nagendrappa’s life but were unsuccessful. On November 9, the accused had tried to kill a bike-borne Nagedrappa by knocking him down with a goods rickshaw. Nagendrappa escaped with his life, however, no complaint was filed about this incident.
