HUBBALLI: Town police have arrested a KSRTC driver in connection with the murder of history sheeter Ramesh Bhandage in Babasan Galli (Belagavi Galli) in Hubballi on Wednesday.
Ijaz Ahmed Bankapura, a driver with the KSRTC and resident of Sheela Colony on Mantoor Road, was arrested on Thursday.
Bhandage had apparently taken Rs 7 lakh from Bankapura a few years ago, promising to help him get a site, but failing to either get him property or return the money, so far. There had also apparently been several rounds of fight between Bankapura and Bhandage over the matter.
On Wednesday, Bankapura stabbed and killed Bhandage before escaping from the place.
The local CCTV camera, however, recorded the scene, helping the investigation. The police, using the footage and the mobile phone calls by Bhandage, arrested Bankapura, said police sources.
