The police are clueless about the motive for the attack. Padil is the co-convener of Hindu Jagarana Vedike’s unit on the outskirts. There has been no link between Raja and Padil according to police records.

A lawyer who has followed criminal proceedings in various courts for many years indicated the possibility of Raja being used as a contract killer by a third party to finish off Padil, because of some old rivalry.

Raja aka ‘Japan Manga’ was taken into custody. Higher police officials arrived at the spot and studied the situation after the police control room flashed the information.



The incident having taken place in the sessions court complex on court hill in the heart of the city has unsettled the citizens. Some of them have blamed the lax security while shifting the undertrials to and from the court.

Police commissioner Chandra Sekhar announced a reward for all the four policemen for their timely intervention.
