Father confessed to handing him over to killers

Police Commissioner Hubballi, Labhu Ram, said, “Akhil, a jeweller, was murdered on December 1. His uncle filed the missing person’s case on December 3, which was misleading. After interrogating the family members, the father of the victim confessed to having hired six persons to get his son killed”.

The senior police official added that the murder was “motivated by personal issues” but did not divulge more details.

“The role of each accused has to be ascertained. The main accused, Akhil’s father, Bharath Mahajanshet, handed over the victim to the “Supari killers” at the murder location and returned home alone”, Commisioner Labhu said at a press conference.

Investigation is going on. The police is investigating the case from all angles, and the chances of the involvement of a few others in this murder case can’t be ruled out, he added.
