BENGALURU: Six waiters of a bar, who had allegedly murdered a customer and dumped his body in a drain, were arrested by Kengeri Police on March 15. Though the murder occurred on February 28, the body was discovered from a drain near Kengeri, on March 3.

The deceased has been identified as Suresh alias Lodde (28), while the arrested are Suresh, Shivakumar, Avinash, Somashekar, N Nagaraj and Kanakaraj—all employees of Hamsa Bar and Restaurant.

Police said that on February 28, at around 10 pm, Suresh had come to Hamsa Bar and Restaurant and consumed alcohol. Around 11.45 pm, waiter Shivakumar had gone to Suresh, asking him to pay the bill, before any of his other orders are taken. Enraged, Suresh refused to pay the bill and threatened to kill Shiva.
