A Bengaluru college student was killed and two of his friends were injured, after a man allegedly attacked them with a broken glass bottle as they objected to his dog barking during the India-Australia World T20 cricket match on Sunday.

The incident took place at SK gardens under JC Nagar police limits on Sunday night, when the trio objected to a dog, which was accompanied by its master John Kennedy, barking at a place where they had made arrangements to watch the match together on TV .

John Kennedy, 24, a private company salesman who brought along his dog, was among the people watching the match.

The deceased, identified as 23-year-old Avinash, along with his friends, asked Kennedy to go away from the spot saying that the barking was disturbing them. It led to an altercation.

An official at JC Nagar police station told The News Minute that, according to the witness’s version to police, the dog was barking non-stop. The people assembled there asked Kennedy to silence his dog. However, during the altercation, Avinash slapped Kennedy, following which the latter left.

A little later, Kennedy, a resident of the area, returned with a group of people. Together they attacked the people who were watching the match.

During the attack, Kennedy stabbed Avinash with the broken end of a bottle. Avinash died on the way to the hospital.

Police said that investigation is going on and Kennedy would be in judicial custody until 12 April.
