BENGALURU: A 55-year-old realtor was hacked to death on Tuesday, in Begur police station limits. The deceased has been identified as Madhava Reddy, a resident of Wellington Paradise Layout. Police said that Reddy had developed a residential layout and had sold a plot to the father of the accused, Manohar. However, the buyer had only paid the advance and had not made any further payments. Reddy was in contact with Manohar, and was demanding that he make the payment.
This had led to a serious fight between them. “Reddy had asked Manohar to come near his house to discuss the same and the latter had gone there in the evening. During the discussion, there was a heated argument between the two, and Manohar, who had brought a machete, attacked Reddy with it, before escaping. Reddy was rushed to a nearby hospital by on-lookers, but he was declared brought dead,” the police said. The Begur police, who have registered a murder case, are on the lookout for Manohar.
