Bengaluru: Man murders cabbie to arrange money for sister’s marriage, lands in custody | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: A 24-year-old unemployed man, who allegedly stabbed a cab driver to death to arrange money for his sister’s marriage, was arrested on Monday.
Veerendra is from Challakere in Chitradurga district and a resident of Attibele in Bengaluru. The body of Nisar Ahmed, a resident of Hulimavu, was found in his car at Tumbadi near Koratagere on February 3.
Veerenda worked in a super market, but lost his job in March last year after the Covid-19 outbreak. However, he continued to live in Bengaluru. His sister’s marriage was scheduled for February 16 this year.
With no money in hand, Veerendra hatched a plan to rent a car and sell it off after killing the driver. On February 2, he hired Nisar’s cab, saying his sister and her fiance wanted to visit temples across the state.
At 7.30pm, Veerendra and Nisar left the city and drove towards Tumakuru. His plan was to kill him before Nelamangala but he noticed police personnel deployed along the highway. They later went to a hotel near Dobbaspet to have dinner. After that Veerendra asked Nisar to drive towards Madhugiri Road as he had to meet his relatives. As they arrived near Tumbadi off Koratagere at 1am, Veerendra told Nisar his relatives would join them and he would pay advance money. Trusting him, Nisar waited inside the car and dozed off. Veerendra stabbed Nisar in the chest and tried to take his body out of the car. As there was heavy movement of vehicles, he backed off and fled. At 6am, passersby saw the body in the parked car and alerted police.
Veerendra is in judicial custody now.
