BENGALURU:  Yelahanka police have arrested two habitual offenders for allegedly stealing a service revolver from the gunman of Devanahalli MLA.


Narasimhamurthy (24), a police constable with City Armed Reserve (CAR) in Bengaluru, was deputed as a gunman to MLA Pilla Munishamappa of JD(S). On February 24, he filed a police complaint stating that his service revolver was stolen by two men at Tirumala Dhaba on Major Unnikrishnan Road.

The duo also stole his two mobile phones and `6,500. The accused made away with the revolver on the pretext of helping Narasimhamurthy when he fell unconscious at the place.


The accused are Dhanush (19) and Vijay (21), both natives of Surathkal in Dakshina Kannada district. They are involved in many theft and robbery cases in Surathkal, Mangaluru and Udupi over the past few years.


A special team was formed to nab the accused. Acting on a tip-off, police caught the duo in Dakshina Kannada district when they were trying to sell the gun. During interrogation police found that Dhanush and Vijay were using one of Narasimhamurthy’s mobile phones and this helped them track their location.
