Missing Mechanic Found Dead
A 40-year-old mechanic, who had been missing since Ugadi, was found dead at his friend’s home on Wednesday.
According to Peenya police, Sathish had worked on Ugadi day and had asked his friend Prakash for the keys to his house saying he was late and would sleep there. Prakash had left for his hometown that night and gave Sathish the keys to his house.
It was only on Wednesday that the incident came to light when Prakash returned home and found that the door was locked from inside.
Despite knocking on the door many times, there was no response. He finally broke open the door to find Sathish lying dead inside.
