A principal of a school in Bengaluru was hacked to death by six men in front of students in the Agrahara Sasarahalli area on Sunday morning.
According to news agency PTI, 60-year-old Ranganath, the principal of the Havanur Public School, was teaching Class 10 students when the gang barged into the classroom and killed him.
They later ran away in the car in which they came to the school, the police said. Based on a tip-off, one of the gang members was arrested from the Mahalaxmi Layout area. He received a bullet injury in his leg and was taken to a hospital.
The police suspect a land dispute relating to the school building as the reason behind the murder. Further investigation is on to ascertain the exact cause and establish the sequence of events, the cops said.
