Bengaluru: A 24-year-old man, Loknath, was brutally hacked to death by a group of assailants who barged into his house after breaking open the main door of his house in Bahadurpur in Anekal.
The incident took place around 1.30 am on Saturday, the police said.
A week ago, Loknath and his gang had a verbal duel with Hemanth and Harish’s gang over a minor issue. A complaint was filed following the incident and the police had summoned both the gangs and warned them against indulging in violence. On Friday, Hemanth and Harish found Loknath alone in a procession and asked him to meet them at a ground. Loknath, however, escaped from the spot and went home.
Angry, Hemanth, Harish and their gang members allegedly barged into Loknath’s house and hacked him to death with lethal weapons. Neighbours who heard the shouts alerted the police. A case has been registered and the police have formed teams to nab the killers.
