When Manjunath refused to repay, Shashikumar called him to discuss the issue. They drank at a bar on Sunday. Around 2.30am, Shashikumar took Manjunath to a vacant site, where he stabbed him and chopped his head. He then went to the police station with the head. Police said both were involved in vehicle thefts.

Similar incident in 2013

It may be recalled that on July 3, 2013, one Shekhar (25) walked into the Parappana Agrahara jail and opened a box containing a blood-soaked head of his uncle Govindappa (38). Shekhar had killed him for sexually assaulting his mother. Shekhar and his friend Santosh had given a lavish dinner to Govindappa at a mango farm in Kolar, before chopping his head with a machete.
