In a police operation in the wee hours of Friday, notorious gangster Srinivasa alias Betthanagere Seena was shot dead.

Seena (37) was wanted for the murder of Binnamangala Krishnappa, JD(S) member of Bangalore Rural zilla panchayat.

Police said Seena had gone underground after Krishnappa’s murder on July 26 and a special team comprising Bangalore Rural SP, Additional SP and a few inspectors was set up by Amar Kumar Pandey, IGP, Central Range, to track him.

“We received inputs on Thursday night that Seena and his aides were staying at a house in Andhrahalli. At around 5 am, the police surrounded the house and warned the rowdies to surrender, but Seena came out and opened fire. Four officers sustained injuries in the attack,” Pandey said. “They ran towards nearby Syndicate Bank Layout at Herohalli. Police chased them and Nandagudi station inspector Subramani opened fire. Seena was hurt in the abdomen and a bullet hit his face. By that time his aides had fled the scene,” he said.

“Seena was rushed to hospitals at Herohalli and Tavarekere. But as there were no doctors, he was shifted to Magadi Government Hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. Efforts are on to arrest his associates. Seena’s firearm is being examined by ballistic experts,” Pandey added. It is yet to be ascertained how many bullets were fired by the police. Seena’s body was shifted to Raja Rajeshwari Medical Hospital for postmortem.
