In an incident that has sent shockwaves through the city, a 27-year-old man stands accused of bludgeoning his aged parents to death before fleeing the scene. The grim discovery was made on Monday evening in the quiet neighbourhood of Kodigehalli, where the unsuspecting couple met a tragic end.


Deputy Commissioner of Police, B M Laxmi Prasad, revealed that the heinous crime is believed to have occurred between 8:30 pm and 9 pm, leaving the neighbourhood in a state of shock. As authorities scramble to piece together the details, the search intensifies for the alleged perpetrator, identified as Sharath.

The victims, Bhaskar (61) and Shantha (60), reportedly cried out for help during the fatal attack. Tragically, their pleas were dismissed as a routine squabble by neighbours who failed to recognize the dire situation unfolding next door. It was only when Sajith, the elder brother of the accused, attempted to contact his parents and received no response that the horrifying truth began to unravel.

Upon reaching their residence, Sajith was confronted with a grim scene. The house, locked from the outside, concealed a horrifying secret. With urgency surging through his veins, he forcibly entered the property, only to be confronted by a sight that will haunt him forever. Bhaskar and Shantha lay lifeless in a pool of their own blood, their lives brutally snuffed out.

Investigations into the shocking double homicide have revealed that the family had resided in Bengaluru for the past 12 years after relocating from Ullal in Dakshina Kannada district. Sharath, the alleged perpetrator, lived under the same roof as his parents, while Sajith chose to live nearby in Tindlu.

Disturbingly, reports suggest that conflicts between Sharath and his parents were commonplace within the household. The frequent quarrels, which would often escalate into heated exchanges, hinted at an underlying tension that ultimately exploded into unimaginable violence.


As the police pursue every lead, the city remains gripped with a sense of unease. The search for Sharath intensifies, with law enforcement agencies leaving no stone unturned in their efforts to apprehend the alleged perpetrator.

The motive behind this horrific act is yet to be determined, leaving the community bewildered and mourning the loss of a loving couple who fell victim to an incomprehensible act of violence.
