Lakshmana’s murder CCB arrest six accused

The investigation into the murder of Bengaluru’s richest gangster, Lakshmana, 45, took a new twist with the arrest of a 21-year-old girl, Varshini, who also happens to be a post-graduate student in the UK’s Cambridge University. Explaining the sordid saga of love, obsession and murder, the police said that Lakshmana had given lakhs of rupees to Varshini, who he knew since she was a kid and, many years later, fell in love with her. But Varshini was in a relationship with another man, and this didn’t go down well with Lakshmana. This tension between the trio eventually led to the murder of Lakshmana. Varshini, daughter of Harish Sanjeevappa, alias Moote Harish, was a neighbour of Lakshmana. Her lover, Rupesh R alias Rupesh Gowda (25), a resident of RR Nagar and a native of Channapatna taluk, runs a dance class at Nagarabhavi. According to the police, Harish and Lakshmana were close friends, with Harish allegedly handling many benami properties of Lakshmana. Since Lakshmana and Varshini were neighbours, the two made frequent visits to each others’ houses. Lakshmana also frequently spoke to Varshini over the phone, bought her clothes and gave her money whenever she wanted it. Things took a twist when Varshini came in contact with Rupesh when she joined his dance class a couple of years ago. Both fell in love and they allegedly eloped twice. Distraught over his daughter’s behaviour, Harish told Lakshmana to warn Rupesh to stay away from his daughter but nothing changed.
