Bengaluru: Four arrested for rowdy’s murder in football stadium | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Four persons were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly murdering rowdy-sheeter Aravind alias Lee inside Karnataka State Football Association (KSFA) stadium on Sunday evening.
The main accused is Stalin, a resident of Old Bagaluru Layout near KG Halli and a rowdy-sheeter in KG Halli police station limits. His associates Louis Jack, Arun Kumar and Vijay Kumar are residents of New Bagaluru. According to police, one suspect is still at large.
On Sunday, the gang of five, including two who were wearing helmets, surrounded Aravind at a BBMP playground where a ‘6-a-side’ football tournament was on. Aravind rushed to the KSFA football stadium and locked himself inside the referee’s room. The accused broke open the door and allegedly hacked him to death using machetes and other weapons. The incident created panic as it took place in full public view a few minutes before a women’s football match was to begin. It was later cancelled.
Probe revealed Stalin and his gang murdered Aravind to avenge the assault on Subhash, Stalin’s younger brother, at KG Halli in April.
MN Anucheth, deputy commissioner of police (central), formed two separate teams to trace and nab the suspects. A team headed by Ashoknagar police inspector Mallesh Bolettin identified the assailants as Stalin and his associates after verifying CCTV footage at the football ground. According to police, Aravind allegedly attacked and harassed people close to Stalin. He had reportedly assaulted Vijay and Jack’s wives a few months ago. Hence, the duo readily joined hands with Stalin to eliminate Aravind.
