Five arrested before killing a shopkeeper
The Vijay Nagar police arrested five people while they were allegedly planning a robbery and the murder of a shopkeeper in the area late on Monday. Due to business rivalry, the accused had planned to kill the shopkeeper, but the police arrested them and foiled their plan.

Four teams of policemen raided the spot and managed to arrest the five people after cordoning off the area.
