Lakshmana was out on bail,while Koti Rama remained in the Chitradurga prison as he was accused of contracting the murder of a local politician in Mysuru.Koti Rama and Lakshmana became rivals during this period simply because Lakshmana was not sending Koti Rama money while he was in prison.Once Lakshmana was out of prison in 2005,he allegedly affiliated himself with other gangsters,who were rivals of Koti Rama and another of his former associate Slum Bharata.Koti Rama and Slum Bharat are currently being suspected of Lakshmana’s murder.The brothers had affiliated themselves with local gangsters in the area and became the point-men for big time dons to hire them to extort and grab land from people across Bengaluru.These guys have been involved in grabbing land since the late 1990s.They kept shifting their loyalties to various dons in the city and they were also encouraged by their family members in Kunigal to get involved in the city’s underworld.They were known for blackmailing people into selling them the land.The brothers would threaten people take away their original property documents and force the victims to sign the sale deed,which they drafted to suit their needs.They have several murder cases registered against them across police stations in the city.In 2013, the CCB’s Organised Crime Wing arrested Lakshmana’s brother Rama after they raided the Jnanabharathi campus.Rama was arrested for the attempt to murder of his rival gangster Cycle Ravi.The twins kept shifting bases from Kunigal to Kamakshipalya, making it difficult for the police to arrest them.Last year, the police arrested notorious land shark Mirle Varadaraj and booked him for illegally grabbing land worth Rs 500 crore.Upon his arrest in December last year,the police learnt that gangster Lakshmana was the enforcer. “When Mirle Varadaraj wanted to grab land, it was Lakshmana who would do all the dirty work.
