The Whitefield police on Monday arrested three men who had allegedly killed a security guard for gain on October 24. The victim is Abdul (60), a guard deputed at a mobile phone tower in Nallurahalli.

The accused are Akbar (37), a resident of Nallurahalli in Whitefield, Mahesh (22) of Kollegal in Chamarajanagar district and Lakshman (35) of Hoskote.

Police said that Abdul was living in a shed next to the mobile tower and the accused, who had learnt that he had collected his salary on October 22, hatched a plan to kill him. On October 24, the trio went to his shed late at night and killed him by slitting his throat. Later, they burnt the body and escaped with `6,500. Akbar and Mahesh have criminal backgrounds and are facing murder and robbery charges. They were also sent to prison but had come out on bail, a senior police officer said.
