    Delhi Police have arrested two persons for killing two Uber drivers within a span of few hours, an official said here on Saturday.

    The accused have been identified as Akku alias Aakash and Junaid, both residents of Anand Parbat.

    According to the official, at around 8:45 a.m. on January 7, a police patrol vehicle noticed an Uber taxi parked on the roadside near the Ramjas ground with a man lying unconscious inside it. The person was immediately shifted to RML Hospital where he was declared brought dead. No apparent injury was visible, but blood was seen coming out of the victim's mouth.

    The identity of the deceased was revealed as Anil Yadav, 48, a resident of south-west Delhi. The mobile phone and wallet of the deceased were found missing and the manner of death seemed to be suspicious.

    Thereafter, the wife of the deceased was informed and she said that her husband had left the house around 6:30 am for work.

    Based on all these details, an FIR under Sections 302 and 34 was registered and the probe was taken up.

    During the course of investigation, it was revealed that the body of another Uber driver, namely Chavvi Nath, a resident of Noida, was also found in the north-west area of the city with similar signs.

    K'taka govt to stop Cong workers from taking part in Mekedatu padayatra

    The Karnataka government is planning to stop Congress workers from participating in the Mekedatu padayatra at Kanakapura border before reaching Mekedatu.

    The police department has erected barricades all over the Ramnagar district and deputed 2,000 police personnel to manage the situation as the face-off continues between the ruling BJP and the Opposition Congress on the issue.

    Ramnagar district authorities have clamped prohibitory orders in the entire district. As per Congress leaders, thousands of workers are expected to participate in the padayatra from surrounding districts.

    The police department sources said that reserved forces and extra staff have been kept ready. They are also ready to initiate action against participants of padayatra and are waiting for the government's instruction in this regard.

    On the other hand, Congress sources said that if government resorts to punitive action, it will be good for the Opposition as it will dent the image of the ruling BJP in the state.

    Police officers who are in a fix over the issue have decided to take action as per the situation until direct orders come from the government.

    The Congress has started preparing for Mekedatu padayatra and made arrangements for cooking and shelter for the workers at choultries and school grounds along the route.

    Padaytra on Mekedatu will begin on January 9 and conclude on January 19.
