Two persons, Suhail and Zoheb, have been arrested following an attack on a realtor who is reportedly close to Urban Development Minister Byrathi Basavaraj.
Around 10:30 pm on Saturday, five persons opened fire on Babu, alias Auto Babu, while he was in his office in KR Puram, and also assaulted him with other weapons. Babu is being treated in a private hospital.
The reason for the attack is thought to be a quarrel between Sohail’s friend Mirchi, who kept his shop open late into the night, and Babu. A case was registered in the KR Puram police station.
