According to Vemgal police officials, 24-year-old Vinod Kumar had attended an event organised in Kolar along with four of his friends. The event was attended by fans of both Junior NTR and Pawan Kalyan. Vinod Kumar, an active member of Pawan Kalyanâ€™s Jana Sena party was invited to speak on stage. His speech on stage is believed to have angered the other side.
Following the event, fans had gone to a bar at Narasapura when an argument broke out between Vinod Kumar and the accused, Akshay, who then stabbed Kumar with a knife. The Pawan Kalyan fan succumbed to the stab wound to his chest. Kolar police arrested the accused on Monday.
