Bengaluru, Oct 16: A 45-year-old pub owner – Manish Shetty - was shot dead late on Thursday night by rival gang members, the police said.

Shetty was reportedly a close associate of Morocco-based fugitive underworld don Bannanje Raja.

The police suspect that members of the Rashid Malabari gang might have carried out the attack, as this is their typical style of murdering rivals in the coastal region of Karnataka, where single barrel gun is often used by gang members to eliminate their rivals, unlike the Bengaluru underworld which often uses machete or sword as its main weapon to eliminate its rivals.

The police added that Shetty was also a rowdysheeter and was wanted in several cases of robbery and murder in Mangaluru and Udupi districts.

According to the police, the deceased Manish Shetty aka Sarvatham Shetty was the owner of Duet pub on RHP Road off Brigade Road in Bengaluru.

Shetty hailed from Koppa village in Chikkamagalurur district.

Speaking to reporters, Deputy Commissioner of Police (central division), M.N. Anucheth, said that at around 9 pm, an incident of shooting occurred in the Cubbon Park police station limits.

"Shetty, aged about 45 years, was shot at by unknown bike-borne assailants in front of his bar located on RHP Road," he said in a statement released to the media.

Shetty was shifted to the Mallya hospital for treatment but the hospital declared him brought dead.

Meanwhile, Bengaluru city Police Commissioner Kamal Panth, who visited the spot, told reporters that the preliminary investigation pointed at the Managluru rivalry connection. "We have definite clues, we will arrest the culprits soon," he said.

Bengaluru, Nov 28: In view of the increase in power tariff by the Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission, apartments in Bengaluru are opting for solar panels to save both money and the environment.

This comes after the state government earlier this month had announced an over 5 per cent surge in power tariff.

"It really helps us because they are raising electricity bills. After doing a detailed analysis of this plan we formed a subcommittee within our apartment. It makes more sense now when the electricity price is going up," said Vishnu, Bangalore Apartments' Federation Secretary for Whitefield 1 and 2 clusters.

Harsha, an apartment resident of Trifecta starlight said the aim of installing solar panels is to give back to the environment.

"The main reason for installing the solar panels is that we wanted to do something for the environment. We wanted to produce something and give back to the environment. The second aspect is that we wanted to keep our costs low," said Harsha, a resident of Trifecta starlight apartment, where the solar panels have been installed at the terrace.

Earlier this month, the state electricity regulatory commission had announced a hike in the power tariff by 40 paise per unit.

According to the order, there has been a 40 paise increase per unit with an average increase of 5.4 per cent.

Mangaluru, Nov 27: Vishva Hindu Parishad has urged a woman, who had converted from Hinduism to Islam and married a Muslim man from Dakshina Kannada, to convert back to Hinduism.

A team of VHP comprising of Sharan Pumpwell, Surekha Raj, Lateesh Gundya and others met Asiya Ibrahim Khaleel aka Shanti Joobi on November 26 and took her to Sullia police station in Dakshina Kannada district to lodge a complaint against the family of her ‘missing’ husband.

The development comes a day after Asiya Ibrahim Khaleel approached the media seeking help to get united with her husband Ibrahim Khaleel Kattekar, whose family is reportedly forcing him to stay away from her.

Asiya, accompanied by Aadhunik Human Rights Committee leaders Rajesh Coelho and Shabbir Ullal, had claimed in a press conference that her husband’s elder brother Shihab had even threatened her to kill her when she had visited her in-law’s house in Sullia in search of her husband.

Asiya, who hailed from Kerala’s Kannur had fallen in love with Ibrahim Khaleel Kattekar, son of Abdul Haji Kattekar after becoming his Facebook friend. Gradually she converted to Islam and on July 12, 2017 they got married. The couple stayed in rented houses in Bengaluru, Mysuru and other places.

According to Asiya, one day Shihab forcefully took her husband away to their house in Sullia and then never allowed him to meet her. She also claimed that she had given money several times exceeding Rs 25 lakh, two luxury cars and two scooters to her husband’s family as per Shihab’s demand.
