Uday Kumar had met Vasanth in a bar, and on Sunday night, the two travelled to Kantamangala in an auto rickshaw and slept in the school corridor. Uday noticed that Vasanth had Rs 800 with him.

    Killing for Rs. 800 shows the widespread poverty and insecurity among the broader population of the underprivileged and downtrodden, though in this incident it might be for buying alcohol!!

    Rudolf R:Mumbai,you are right in saying he must have done it not because of powerty but in a drunken stuper and simply again to give for alcohol.Otherwise he would have not sleep in school with him.Poor people may not kill a person for 800Rs.Somehow may his soul rest in peace.

    Never befriend a stranger in a new place... That too never in a bar in the thick of night... Over drunkenness can lead to temporary mind swings... Better complete your works and reach your home town quickly... RIP to the departed soul...
