BENGALURU: For the first time in the history of the Bengaluru City Police, a 30-year-old habitual offender has been externed from the city for a period of one year. Karthik alias Rahul, a resident of Gautampura in Halasuru, has been banished for a year. A history-sheeter at Halasuru police station, he had 11 cases against him.

Police said that Karthik was involved in crimes such as rape, robbery, attempt to murder, extortion, criminal intimidation, attack on government employees, and other offences, throughout the period of the last 10-11 years. He had no fear of the law and continued committing crimes that were detrimental to society. Hence, the Police Inspector of Halasuru station had submitted a report proposing that he be banished from Bengaluru City.
