On Tuesday night, youths identified as Santhosh, Raamu, Mani, Basava, Nandish and Kaathi, had gone to Mamatha Super Market, located in Akshaynagar near Bannerghatta Road and purchased ice cream worth about `180. They had the ice cream there and tried to go away without paying the bill. The owner stopped them and asked them to pay.
