He was under medication for the last four years, said Jawaharnagar police.
Jawaharnagar sub-inspector S. Saidulu said that a mini bus driver Manchala Ramesh, 37, and resident of Shivaji Nagar was suffering from a mental illness for the last four years. He believed that somebody had done black magic against him.
