The deceased has been identified as  Dharnappa Poojary (40), son of  late Jarappa Poojary. The accused elder brother  Kushalappa Poojary (52)  has been arrested.

The brothers lived   along with their mother. On Saturday evening, Kushalappa had reportedly picked up a quarrel with Dharnappa and hit  the latter with a wooden club resulting in his death.

Kushalappa who was present at the scene of the crime, was apprehended by the police who rushed to the spot. It is said Kushalappa  who had no regret of committing the crime did not escape as he had no money in his hands.

The two brothers who did odd jobs to eke out a living, used to frequently engage in quarrel under the influence of alcohol. It is learnt the wives of both the brothers had deserted them years ago and are living with their parents.

Sources said  in an earlier  fight between the brothers three weeks back,  Kushalappa was injured after Dharnappa had attacked him  with a sickle. However, no police complaint was lodged in this connection.

The deceased Dharnappa has left behind his wife, a son and daughter while the accused Kushalappa has three children.
