But police denied the allegation and said that no chain snatching incident was reported that day.
The deceased has been identified as Saikiran, a resident of Kaggadasapura, who worked in an air hostess training centre in Koramangala.

A senior police officer said, “After work, Saikiran had gone to a bar near his office with his friends to attend a party. They were under the influence of alcohol. Later, they dropped him near SCT College. Around 11.30pm, he was found lying in a pool of blood. A passerby rushed him to Bowring hospital, where he succumbed to death.”

According to Saikiran’s relatives, on Saturday night, a gang snatched a gold chain from a woman and escaped. Saikiran, who noticed them, tried to nab them. The furious gang stabbed him repeatedly and fled the scene.

A police officer said, “We are investigating the case from all angles. We have detained a few suspects for interrogation. We have also obtained CCTV footage to gather details of the assailants. The motive for the murder is yet to be ascertained.”
