Bengaluru, Feb 20: Police have nabbed two people and seized Rs one crore worth stolen articles and cash from them in the city.

Police said that the arrested were identified as Najim Sharif and Mohammed Shafiullah. While Jazim was in a Real Estate business, Shariff was doing Granite business. Both had incurred loss in their respective business and wanted money to clear their debt.

Taking advantage of their friend being admitted to hospital for treatment, both of them hatched a plan and robbed his house and escaped with the booty in the vehicles of their friend's car and two wheeler.

Police had a hard time since they were forced to watch CCTV installed in the apartment, on the portico of the building, car parking and on the main street. However, their hard work paid off in the end when they found that after committing crime the duo sprinkled chilly powder to mislead the police and come to the hospital and attend to the patient as they were very concerned about his health.

Najim Shariff was in possession of Rs 32.64 lakh in Indian currency, Rs 5,79,946 in foreign currencies of various countries, One Car, two mobile phones, 45 gram gold, Rs 6,40,000 cash in Indian currency.

Bengaluru, Apr 7: Hardline BJP leader and MLA Basanagouda Patil Yatnal today said that Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa would be replaced by someone from northern region of the state in a month. 

“After May 2, the change will happen for sure. It’ll be someone from North Karnataka who will become the CM,” Yatnal told reporters at Vidhana Soudha. May 2 is when the result of the five states’ elections will be out. 

“Does Yediyurappa enjoy a special status that Kashmir used to have,” Yatnal asked. “In the backdrop of the party’s policy (of not giving tickets to those above 75 years), it’s a bonus that Yediyurappa got two years extra,” he said, urging Yediyurappa to “voluntarily retire” after April 17, the day when Belgaum Lok Sabha, Maski and Basavakalyan assembly seats have bypolls.

Yatnal, a former union minister, said more legislators and ministers will “rise up” after April 17. “Right now, they’re being forced to go before the media and issue statements in support of Yediyurappa,” he said. 

The BJP central leadership was taking note of all developments, he said. “They’re noticing scams, transfer mafia and how the High Court is blasting the government,” he said. 

The former union minister claimed that BJP vice-president and Yediyurappa’s son B Y Vijayendra was summoned to Delhi by the Enforcement Directorate for an inquiry. “Let Vijayendra deny this. Let him say he did not transfer thousands of crores from Federal Bank to a foreign bank. Let the father-son duo make a statement against me instead of speaking through unimportant people,” Yatnal said, adding that “their true colours and the loot will be out soon”. 

This is not the first time Yatnal cat-called Yediyurappa. In February, the BJP issued a show-cause notice to Yatnal. However, the notice did little to keep Yatnal from attacking the Yediyurappa administration.
