Bengaluru, May 11: A 38-year-old movie-goer was beaten to death by a parking attendant and his associate over paying Rs 10 in parking fee in Bengaluru's Bharathinagar on Thursday evening.

Bharani Dharan, 38, a resident of Austin Town and construction labourer, was going to Lavanya theatre when the incident took place. Police sources said Dharan was drunk.

Dharan arrived at the theatre and parked his motorbike on an adjacent lane for a 5.30pm show.

Police said Dharan was in a hurry to buy a ticket for Tamil movie, 'Kanchana 3'.

K Selvaraj, 50, the parking attendant, demanded Rs 10 from Dharan, who said he'd pay after returning from the movie.

Selvaraj insisted Dharan pay on the spot. That led to arguments. Selvaraj allegedly pushed Dharan into the theatre compound and Shekar, 35, a housekeeping assistant with the theatre, joined the former. Selvaraj and Shekhar rained blows on Dharan's chest, leaving him unconscious. Dharan was shifted to Bowring Hospital, where he was declared brought dead.

Selvaraj and Shekhar, from Pulakeshinagar, have been arrested on murder charges. Police said the duo don't have a criminal past. Dharan is survived by his parents and a younger sister.

Miscreants illegally man parking lots, collect fees

Police sources said with most parts of Bengaluru lacking pay-and-park facility, miscreants man parking lots for a fee. This often leads to squabbles.

The BBMP’s request to introduce a pay-andpark policy on 85 roads has been approved by the government, but its implementation has been held up because of model code of conduct.

God will help you only if you put all your efforts: Siddaramaiah on Sriramulu's comment

News Network
July 16,2020

Bengaluru, Jul 16: Former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Thursday hit out at state Health Minister B Sriramulu for stating that "only God can save Karnataka" from COVID-19 and asked him to resign from his post.

Speaking to media here in Bengaluru, Siddaramaiah said, "The government cannot say that we are helpless. Why is the government in power? You have power and you have money. It is your primary duty to serve the citizens of the state."

On being asked about Karnataka Health Minister's statement, the Congress leader said: "Let him resign and go out. God will help you only if you will put all your efforts."

Meanwhile, President of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee DK Shivakumar tweeted "Karnataka's Health Minister saying 'Only God can save Karnataka' reflects poorly on @BSYBJP govt's ability to handle the Covid crisis. Why do we need such a government if they cannot tackle the pandemic?"

Sriramulu had said on Wednesday that either people should inculcate awareness or only God can save them from COVID-19.

"Who can save us at this time? It's either God or people should inculcate awareness in them. Congress leaders are involved in political mudslinging at this time. This is not fine and it will not help them in any way," the Minister had said.

"It is a crucial time, in the interest of the general public. I request all the Congress leaders not to indulge in loose talk regarding the issue, it leads to more panic situation among the general public. We are ready to adhere to any punishment if we did any wrong thing," he had added.
