palani: Bengaluru: Rowdy attacks cop in Ashoknagar, shot at | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: Police shot at and injured a murder suspect and rowdy — Palani alias Kerchief Palani —after he allegedly attacked them in Ashoknagar cemetery late Tuesday night.
Facing more than 22 criminal cases, including three murders, Palani was recently booked in the murder case of Munnakumar, 35, reported in Bellandur on November 10. Munnakumar, a resident of Kasavanahalli slum quarters, was walking towards a shop at 8pm when a gang of four miscreants led by Palani stabbed him to death. Police claimed Munnakumar was innocent and had no criminal antecedents. Palani objected to Munnakumar walking freely at night and that led to an altercation, police said.
Palani, who once sold kerchiefs for a livelihood, had attacked police twice earlier. Sleuths from the Organised Crime Wing-2 traced him near the cemetery at 11pm. A team headed by HS Parmeshwar rushed to the spot. “Palani resisted arrest, assaulted inspector Harish Kumar with a dagger and injured him on his left elbow. The ACP fired at his left leg. He has been admitted to Bowring hospital,” Sandeep Patil, joint commissioner of police (crime), said.
