Body Found 8 Km From Where He Made Last Call
Bangalore: A software engineer from Ranchi, working with Tayana Software Solutions in the city, was found murdered in Doddakannelli, Sarjapur Road, on Thursday evening. He was missing since Tuesday.

“He could be a victim of robbery. His cellphone is missing. The postmortem shows two injuries,” said the Koramangala police.

The deceased, Rakesh Kumar (22), was staying with a friend at Chinnappa Garden in Mahadevapura. Around 10 pm on Tuesday, Rakesh called his friends from his mobile, saying he was stuck in the rain near K.R. Puram’s Tin Factory and would reach home late. When he did not return the next day, his friends filed a complaint with the Mahadevapura police and inserted advertisements in newspapers, trying to trace him.

The body, found in Doddakannelli, matched the description given in the complaint, confirming that the deceased was Rakesh. “Rakesh’s family is expected here by Saturday. We are enquiring with his friends and colleagues to know whether he had any enmity or affair,” the police said.

The police are baffled how Rakesh, stuck in K.R. Puram on Tuesday night, was found dead in Doddakannelli, about 8 km away. “Our probe is based on this,” a police officer said. The police are verifying calls made and received on Rakesh’s mobile.
