Bangalore: Just three days after the Andhra police's anti-terrorist squad nabbed three Naxals from the suburbs of Bangalore city, an anti-Naxal force (ANF) constable of the Chikmagalur base, was found dead on the road in Shyamabattarapalya in Nelamangala taluk of Bangalore Rural district on Thursday morning.

DySP (Nelamangala sub division) Dharanendra said, "The body was noticed early Thursday morning at around 8am. The deceased belonged to the Battalion III of Karnataka State Reserve Police (KSRP), and was on his rest period when the incident occurred."

Police learnt that Krishna was at the battalion on Wednesday morning and had left Bangalore only in the afternoon. "We do not know why he travelled towards Nelamangala as his native place is Channasandra in Ramanagara district," police said. They found strangulation marks on his neck.
