Mangaluru: A man had been found dead near a vegetable shop in the central market here on the morning of Dec 29.
Injury marks had been found on his person and the police had suspected to be a case of murder. The CCTV footage from the nearby locations supported the suspicion as it showed three persons assaulting him with hands and stones.
The Bunder police had requested the media to publicize the news with photograph. This website had published the news the same day.
He has been identified as Jayananda Amanna (50) aka Jaya, of Jeppu Bappal. He worked as a security guard at different places and never used to go home regularly. He used to sleep on the verandas of houses or bus stands in the nights.
The fight that led to the killing is thought to have been caused by a dispute over the sleeping space or a plain drunken fight.
However, the identity of the persons who assaulted him has not yet been ascertained. The Bunder police are pursuing the case.
