History-sheeter, gang attack 5, damages vehicles in Bengaluru

Bengaluru saw some tense moments last week after a rowdy sheeter and his gang apparently attacked five people and damaged 11 vehicles.

Around 10pm Saturday, Aneef, a history-sheeter, visited a house in Modi Garden with his gang to ask a woman to marry her daughter to one of his associates.

She refused citing his criminal activities, and that's when the gang resorted to violence.
