Bengaluru: In an incident straight out of a movie, a man allegedly hacked a man to death and drove with the body in the car for several hours before surrendering himself to police.

Maheshappa (45) of Nanjangud in Mysuru district is the deceased, while the accused is identified as Rajashekar of Jayanthinagar in Ramamurthy Nagar police station limits, Bengaluru.

In his confession, Rajashekar a professional mechanic has claimed that, however he had no intention to kill him. The duo were engaged in a financial dispute.

Savitha mother of Rajashekar knew Maheshappa for 13 years. Mahesha who had claimed to be a founder of an NGO had lured Savita with the promise of availing government loans. Believing in him, Savitha introduced him to her relatives and friends to avail the benefits. They too believed in him and together gave Rs two crore in total to Maheshappa. Savitha even sold her house and gave the money to Maheshappa.

However Maheshappa turned out to be a fraudulent as he failed to keep his promise. He had cheated them all and also refused to return the amount.

Angered Rajashekar went in search of Maheshappa to his native Nanjangud on November 19. Maheshappa who allegedly obliged took Rajashekar to several places in Mysuru, Channapatna, Ramanagar and Bengaluru, but eventually failed to arrange money. Frustrated Rajashekar allegedly hit Maheshappa with an iron rod several times. 

Rajashekar who stopped his car near a hotel at Avalahalli in Bengaluru, went out leaving Maheshappa in the vehicle. He returned after sometime only to find Maheshappa dead.

Feared Rajashekar drove around with the body inside the car for three hours before surrendering to the police.

When Rajashekar went to the police station post midnight hours of Monday and told them about the incident, they were also taken aback.

It was confirmed later, after they found Maheshappa’s body in the rear seat.
