Alliance University chancellor Sudhir Angur was arrested by Bengaluru Police on Thursday in connection with the murder case of varsity’s former vice-chancellor Ayyappa Dore.
Along with Sudhir, his accomplice Suraj Singh was also arrested for allegedly hatching the conspiracy to eliminate Dore and engaging contract killers for it.
Singh and a gang of four contract killers, now on the run, hacked Dore in HMT Playground in RT Nagar late Tuesday night, police said.
Hailing from Saasooru in Vijayapura district, Dore was the founder Vice Chancellor of the varsity.
The incident happened when Dore had gone out for a walk and was attacked by a few men. His body was discovered by the police on patrol duty at HMT Ground on Wednesday morning.
