BANGALORE: A couple from Challakere in Chitradurga District, on Wednesday, sought Additional Director General of Police (Grievance and Human Rights Cell) Alok Kumar’s help as they were allegedly receiving threatening phone calls.

M Ramesh (29) and L Naveena (28), who were in love for four years, got married on May 15 at Bellary Sub Registrar’s office. The couple alleged that after learning about the marriage, the girl’s family started harassing the boy’s family. The family lodged a complaint that the girl was missing.

“We are getting threatening phone calls and have met the official concerned for help, but to no avail. We did not get enough protection from the Challakere police station,” said Ramesh.

Alok Kumar directed SI Srinivas of Challakere to provide protection to the couple. The ADGP warned the SI of strict action if he failed to follow the orders 

Man Kills Cousin Over Property

Eying a larger inheritance, a 35-year-old man killed his cousin at Yeshwantpur on Wednesday. Sharad Horu and Manoj (26), painters with  BMRCL, had recently returned to the city after a brief visit to Jharkhand. Their family owned five acres which was divided between Manoj and Sharad and the former got three acres.  “Sharad thought that if he killed his cousin, he would get the entire five acres,” police officials said.

Around 3 am on Wednesday, Sharad smashed Manoj’s head with a log when he was asleep.

The cousins lived with 10 other Metro workers, who woke up on hearing Manoj scream. They tied up Sharad and shifted Manoj to NIMHANS where he died around 8.30 am.  “Sharad believed he was cheated by Manoj’s family,” police said. The workers handed over Sharad to the Yeshwantpur police.
