BENGALURU: A 42-year-old realtor sustained bullet injuries after he was shot at by a man over a land dispute. The incident took place in Jigani village on the city’s outskirts on Sunday. It triggered tension among the villagers for a while. The injured is Ramamurthy, a resident of Lingapura. He is now recovering at a private hospital and is out of danger. The accused Sadappa (61) is still at large.

Ramamurthy

A senior police officer said the incident took place early morning when Ramamurthy along with his cousin brothers visited Karpuru village to clean the disputed land. Ramamurthy had purchased 0.75 acres of agriculture land from Muttamma, a relative of Sadappa, a year ago.

Sadappa claimed that some part of the land belonged to him and Muttamma had sold it against his wishes. He had warned Ramamurthy to stay away from the land till the dispute was over. However, Ramamurthy went ahead to clean it. When Sadappa came to know about this, he went to the spot and allegedly opened fire at Ramamurthy with his single barrel gun and fled. The bullet pierced through the left knee of Ramamurthy, and his cousin Thimmaraju rushed him to a private hospital on Bannerghatta Road. A special team has been formed to nab Sadappa.
