BENGALURU: THE Bengaluru Rural police on Monday arrested three persons, including the prime accused, in connection with the murder of BJP Bommasandra Town Municipal Council member Srinivas Prasad alias Kithaganahalli Vasu.

According to police sources, prime accused Manjunath alias Gym Manju, Ashok and Udaya were arrested from their hideout in a remote village in Shivamogga district.
With this, the total number of arrests in the case has gone up to ten.
“Manjunath, the main accused in the case, is a son of Sarojamma, a Congress leader and president of Bommasandra municipality, who has already been arrested in the case,” police said.  
“We  are still probing to ascertain the motive behind the murder though political rivalry is mostly suspected. We also suspect that the arrested persons might have hired killers to murder Srinivas Prasad. We are questioning them in this regard. Efforts are on to nab a few others who are on the run.”
The police had earlier arrested seven persons — Sarojamma (45), Madhu alias Spike (23), Narayanswamy (35), Murali G alias Appu (20) and C Manjunath alias Karpuru (29), Satish and Chandrappa — in connection with the murder.
