According to the police, the victim identified as a 39-year-old Morado was stabbed at his residence by his friend Samuel (30), a student of KNS College, Hebbal.

The victim was killed at his residence in Janakiram Layout by his friend Samuel 30 who is a BBA student with KNS college near Hebbal.

According to reports, Bengaluru police said that an unemployed Morado was miffed with Samuel for forgeting his tiffin box at a food joint on Saturday afternoon.

It was learnt that the long-time unemployed status of Morado frustrated him and believed to have contributed to his short temperedness as disclosed by the Police.

Narrating the incident, Bengaluru police said;

“Samuel had taken Morado’s lunch box to buy chicken from a food joint in Hennur on Saturday afternoon after which he forgot the same there. Morado, who was drunk, on realising his tiffin box was missing slapped and abused Samuel after which other friends intervened to pacify them,”

According to reports filed by FIR, Samuel couldn’t forget the insult. He returned to Morado’s residence in Janakiram Layout in Hennur at around 3 am with a kitchen knife.

However, Morado did not open the door at first questioning why he came.

“Samuel couldn’t forget the insult. Armed with a kitchen knife, he rode back to Morado’s residence in Janakiram Layout at 3am and knocked on the door. Without opening the door, Morado asked Samuel why he’d come. Samuel is said to have asked Morado to apologise for having slapped him,” police said.

Neighbours told police they could hear Samuel and Morado shouting at each other around 3.30am.

However, Morado did not open the door at first questioning why he came.

“Samuel was later allowed to enter on saying he wanted to apologise for his behaviour after which he stabbed Morado on his chest and stomach. Neighbours have stated that the men were heard shouting fiercely at each other until at least 3.30 am,” the police added.

Some of the neighbours alerted the police of the commotion but Morado had died by the time police arrived at the spot.

“Samuel was arrested from the place of crime in Morado’s residence after which he later confessed the incident on inquiry,” the police said.

A thorough investigation and verification of statements are now underway.
