Bengaluru, Nov 21 (IANS) The Karnataka police have arrested a history-sheeter who faked his death to evade arrest for two years, police said on Tuesday.
The City Central Crime Branch (CCB) sleuths arrested Mallikarjuna aka Malli, a history-sheeter in the Whitefield police station of Bengaluru.
According to the police, the accused was involved in two murder cases that occurred in Kadubeesanahalli and Rajanukunte localities in Bengaluru.
