Bengaluru: Missing banker's decomposed body bearing multiple stab wounds found
The decomposed body of a 36-year-old banker, who went missing on Friday, was found two days later in a eucalyptus grove near his house in Attibele, some 33kms from Bengaluru. His body bore several injury marks, and his face had multiple stab wounds. The deceased's wife alleged that the killers have stolen his two-wheeler, cell phone and a bag containing bank documents.
Murugesh B was the CEO of Kachanayakanahalli branch of the Primary Agriculture Credit Cooperative Society. He sanctioned loans and recovered the outstanding dues. Murugesh's wife Radha said that he called her up on Friday morning to ask about a misplaced key. She was near Tamil Nadu then, attending a wedding, but returned that day to their Samandur residence and was looking for the key.
Close to 9 pm, three men, unknown to Radha, visited their house and asked for Murugesh. They said they wanted to speak to him regarding a bank loan. Since Murugesh was not at home, Radha gave them his mobile number. Radha sensed something was amiss when Murugesh did not return from office on Friday and was also unreachable on phone for two consecutive days.
"I then informed Murugesh's brother, Devaraju, and we began a search for him," said an inconsolable Radha. When they failed to find him, they informed the Suryanagar police station. Cops said that they suspect that Murugesh was killed on Friday itself and that known people might have been involved as well. After a post-mortem at Victoria Hospital, his body was handed over to family.
