Sources said Kariappa who was sore over some issue  had  travelled to Mangaluru from Haveri by bus with just Rs 500 in hand. It is said he spent a day at a bus stand in Mangaluru before boarding a bus to Sirsi. However, he did not have enough money to travel to Sirsi and bought a ticket to Kundapur. He alighted from the bus near Tallur bridge and jumped into the river. Luckily locals who saw him jumping informed the police and he was eventually rescued.
