A real estate businessman and former rowdy-sheeter named Kapil was brutally hacked to death in Bengaluru on Tuesday night. The tragic incident occurred on the KHB main road within the jurisdiction of D.J. Halli police station. Allegedly, four to five miscreants on motorcycles assaulted Kapil using swords and machetes.


Local residents rushed the injured Kapil to the hospital, but unfortunately, he succumbed to severe bleeding and failed to respond to treatment. Sources confirmed his untimely demise.

Upon receiving the information, the police promptly arrived at the scene and registered a case of murder. Special teams have been formed to apprehend the assailants.

Kapil, known as a rowdy-sheeter, had a previous criminal record at the Madiwala police station. He was notorious for his involvement in various gang wars, including the murder of another rowdy-sheeter named Babu, also known as Nakra Babu, near Jai Bhim Nagar in BTM Layout back in October 2014. Babu was brutally killed in front of his family near the residence of his friend Raj Kamal.

An anonymous eyewitness, speaking to Republic, expressed their terror at witnessing the attack in broad daylight. The witness shared that the victim screamed in pain while the miscreants assaulted him with weapons. After the attackers fled the scene, the locals promptly rushed Kapil to the hospital. Such incidents instill a sense of insecurity among residents in the city, the eyewitness lamented.

The police are currently investigating the murder from two perspectives. One angle involves exploring the possibility of real estate rivalries between Kapil and his competitors. The other angle examines the potential motive of an ongoing feud between rival gangs. At this stage, the exact reason behind the murder cannot be determined, stated an anonymous police officer.

In a related incident that occurred in June of the same year, Babu was killed in retaliation for the murder of Kavala Vijay Kumar near the Hosur check post. Kapil and his gang members, namely Saravana, Vinay, Ranjith, James, and Shyam, were subsequently arrested by the Madiwala Police.

Following Kapil’s brutal slaying, concerns have arisen regarding the resurgence of the decade-old conflict.
