HUBBALLI: Hours after a former history-sheeter was murdered near Kamaripeth in the heart of Hubballi on Wednesday afternoon, another killing rocked the city hours later. Manjula Mannavaddar, a resident of Hosur Veer Road, was reportedly murdered when she tried to intervene in a fight at a neighbour’s house.
According to a report, Geetha, who lives next door, had a fight at home with her mother and sister-in-law. Manjula tried to help them out but this only annoyed Geetha and she didn’t like Manjula’s intervention.
Geetha hit her with a broom on the head, hit her on the chest and then pushed her away. The blow proved fatal. Manjula collapsed on the floor, her head first-down.
Vidyanagar police have registered a case and arrested Geetha.
