Hiriyadka police visited the spot and are investigating. Police are suspecting that the issue of Cricket betting may be reason for this murder.

Prashanth Poojary was working as a conductor in the city bus since many years. He had bought a bus recently and was working as a conductor in the same bus. Prashanth Poojary had very good rapport with everyone in the vicinity of city bus stand. It is said that he used to be on his own and did not mix much with others.

The city bus employees are shocked by the murder of Prashanth Poojary. The City Bus Employees' Association has urged the police to apprehend the culprits as soon as possible.

    police dept is concentrating more on helmetless two wheeler riders. instead of that they should work on these criminals so that people can live in peace.

    Police should go beyond catching helmet less drivers, its not only that duty assigned to them.... Betting, ganja, theft etc has been rampant, can't understand why police don't take preventive actions in these cases...they are only concerned about helmet less two wheeler riders.....

    Its not due to cricket betting, the bus owner had given gurantee to a person for bank loan, it was due to be paid.....the bank put pressure on the gurantor so he asked the person to pay back...thats why he killed him in anger ....such news is heard here.

    Very very sad... He shed his blood for helping someone and not for his sin. Where prevailed the justice and where is the truth now a days ? Such incidents make us to think ten times to help someone. Rest in peace dear Prashant... We can write only this much and pray for the bereaved family. Condolences to his family 🙏

    Fortunately Up is becoming more and more safe under Yogi. Yes Once UP was in worst Condition during Scamgress rule. Unfortunately under Scmagress+JDS Karnataka is turning into another West Bengal. West Bengal and karnataka ruled by Maha Milavat Bandhan parties.
