It has been gathered that both had purchased liquor and were enjoying the same when suddenly Santosh did not like Pradeep speaking to a woman. That was enough for both to engage in a duel under the influence of alcohol. During the altercation, Santosh even  had reportedly shouted at Pradeep’s mother. Infuriated over this, Pradeep picked up a knife from the kitchen and stabbed Santosh.

The saloon owner who rushed to the spot on hearing their screams rushed Santosh to the hospital   but he reportedly died  on way. Sources said even  Pradeep helped  the saloon owner

The accused later surrendered at the Ullal Police station.  It has been gathered that the deceased Santosh was  planning to marry in  March while his sister was  scheduled to marry on February 15.
