BENGALURU: A 20-year-old hotel employee was stabbed to death by his brother-in-law in Byatarayanapura on Tuesday morning. Financial dispute is said to be the reason.
The deceased has been identified as Sourabh, a native of Assam. He was living in a rented accommodation along with other employees of a hotel located in Kengeri. The suspect Mithun is absconding.

The police said Mithun and Sourabh worked in the same hotel and lived together at Hosaguddadahalli on Mysore Road. On Monday late night, the duo quarrelled over a financial dispute and Mithun was about to leave the city. In a fit of rage, he took a sharp object and stabbed Sourabh in the neck and head and fled the scene.

When other roommates returned from work, they found Sourabh lying in a pool of blood. They rushed him to a private hospital, where he was declared brought dead.
Mithun later called his younger brother, who lives in Kengeri and told him that he attacked Sourabh over non-payment of debt. Police are questioning Mithun’s brother as a part of investigation.
