Bantwal, Oct 21: Tulu film actor and rowdy-sheeter Surendra Bhandary Bantwal was found murdered in a residential apartment in Bantwal.
The incident came to light this afternoon. It is suspected that miscreants might have hacked him to death last night or this morning.
He had acted in Tulu movie ‘Chaali Polilu’. Police personnel rushed to the spot and undertook investigation.
He was a hardline Hindutva activist. However, due to personal differences with some leaders he had distanced himself from the Sangh Parivar.
In June 2018, he was arrested along with two others in a case of an attempt to murder three persons belonging to BJP in Baddakatte in Bantwal.
