BENGALURU: Security guard Mohan is an employee with VSS Services, Rajajinagar, and has been working with the agency for one-and-half years.
Veerabhadraswamy, the agency owner, said that Mohan has a valid licence for a single-barrel gun. “After confirming that he has an arms licence, I deployed him at the construction site of T N Javaregowda, who is also my best friend. Mohan’s monthly salary is `12,000,” said Veerabhadraswamy.
Speaking to Express, Javaregowda, said, “Even in the past, a few unidentified people had stolen some of the construction materials. But the guards who were deployed at the site were unable to stop them. Then, I hired an armed security guard to prevent such incidents. I did not inform the police about the previous
incidents thinking they were all petty crimes. But I regret that the man lost his life.”
Javaregowda added, “I don’t suspect any known people to be involved in the case as I have no enmity with anyone. I stay close to the site and my son is taking care of the construction.
“Thus, Mohan called my son and informed him about the incident. After that, I rushed to the spot and spoke to the police officers who inspected the spot.”
