Puttur: Land dispute - Photographer murdered with hammer, buried in forest


Daijiworld Media Network - Puttur (SP)

Puttur, Nov 25: The police have cracked a case pertaining to the mysterious disappearance of a photographer after he went missing six days back to have a look at his landed property. The police have learnt that the photographer was hit on the head with his own relatives with a hammer and buried his body inside the forest. It is said that there was land dispute between the two sides.

Jagadish (58) who belongs to Mangaluru and currently resides at Subrahmanya Nagar Mysuru was eliminated in this fashion. The police have taken into custody Balakrishna alias Subbaiah Rai from Paduvannur Patladka, his wife Jayalaxmi, son Prashanth, and Jeevan Prasad, a neighbour. They have been accused of murdering Jagadish.


Jagadish

Jagadish used to live with wife and son in Mysuru and normally visited Puttur to have a look at his agricultural property in Puttur Kunjoor Panja in Aryapu village. On November 18 morning, he had arrived by a bus to his property. Later, he did not return home. His brother, Shashidhar, had filed a missing report in Sampya police station here.

Prima facie, the police have found that land dispute between Jagadish and Balakrishna alis Subbaiah Rai, both of who were related to each other, gave rise to this murder. Rai was an uncle of Jagadish by relationship. Jagadish had remitted Rs 65 lac to Rai to buy land and the same was acquired at Pulithady, Kunjoor Panja. This land was under the supervision of Subbaiah Rai and it is said that documents of this property were also in the name of Rai. This had given rise to a feeling of discontentment between the two. The enmity grew after the land at Pulithady was sold by Rai without informing Jagadish sometime back, it is said. On November 18, Jagadish reached Patladka in Omni vehicle after seeing the land at Kunjoorpanja, when the two were involved with an exchange of heated words culminating in murder. Jagadish usually brought his wife with him during these visits but this time he had come alone.

After Jagadish was hit in the head with a hammer, he died on the spot. The three accused together buried his body in Maguli protected forest nearby. The spot where the body was buried was just 300 meters away from their house. The body was exhumed and taken to Mangaluru for further tests and postmortem.

It is said that three more people from Sullia Halegate have also been taken into custody by the police relating to this case.

    it is foolishness part of Mr. Jagadish, why should he transfer 65 lakhs to uncle's account whereas he had options to deal with seller in same state, Mysore is not too far from Puttur, he should have dealt directly with seller, instead of he prepared his own grave

    Nothing to do. Take the same hammer and hit their head till it becomes flat then give fire till that becomes ash. Case closed.

    Successive governments failed to solve land disputes around the country resulting in heavy loss of lives, enemity & attacks. Government can solve land disputes within minutes if it has the desire to do so. People are losing lives but successive governments not showing any interest to solve this burning issue. Governments should send officers to the disputed sites, call the surveyors to site, call the concerned parties & solve the disputes on site once for all. This is going too far. 50+ years cases are still pending in courts, can anybody imagine???????? Please don't go to courts, instead solve the disputes mutually at source itself for your own well being, peace of mind & peaceful living. Nobody is permanent on this earth.

    Kiran- reason is greed man. Here 65lacs gone. Probably there was demand for more money. What government can do if two parties engage in fight? Probably police should get more power to beat greedy parties. Thats all

    Dear Kiran D'Souza, Mangalore, Totally agree with you. Our courts are at the service of the highest bidder and hence very often does not cater to justice of the needy. However, there are other issues also. Those who have the money power tend to use courts to throw paper work and prolong the dispute by not appearing etc. Also, a lot of transaction happens based on trust and no paperwork. The above case is also same. Money has changed hands, but not accompanied with an undertaking regarding for what purpose money changed hands, what will be the end use of that money etc. When greed creeps in, and the person stops cooperating, acrimony develops and that which is difficult to even solve through courts. Awareness of people to enter into an agreement and following the due process of law is also the reason behind lot of unnecessary disputes going to the court. Very often people forget that they will not live in this earth forever and avoid paperwork, which also becomes a problem for those who inherit it.

    In most of the cases there will be a cheater involved in these type of cases and will not agree to solve the issue with mutual understanding. I had purchased a piece of land in which the seller had encroached the property of a third party and sold to me. The seller was very well known ti us and from a priestly family and badly in need of money for his son's MBA education and had bank loans. I easily believed him and purchased the land without checking the documents. Just not to make quarrels and fights i paid one more time to the original owner for the same land. Cheaters play didnot ended here. He bribed the land document writer and without my knowledge inserted a clause stating he has reserved his rights on part of my property even though i had paid the full amount twice. Court cannot solve these type of cases.

    Albert you already paid the amount two times. Now you pay may be some fraction one more time to some goon and tell him to eliminate that guy from the society so that others also safe from this man. When Nayalaya becomes Naaeelaya we must find other ways to get justice.

    @ Sachi Shettre.., Totally agree that there is no concept called - "FEKU Hinduism"; but i am forced to coin that phrase... b'coz the thug class politicians engage in selling Hinduism for political reasons.... you have every right to reject the phrase... even i don't wish to use it., but to make people realise & get the feeling about nonsense I choose the wording....,
