A Bangalore on Tuesday acquitted five people, including alleged underworld don Muthappa Rai, in a murder case.

Special Sessions Court Judge A P Murari said 'the prosecution has failed to prove the conspiracy theory' involving Rai in the murder of Subbaraju, a realtor, in January 2001.

The court sentenced Yousuf Bachkan to life imprisonment and imposed a fine of Rs 20,000 for his role in the crime.
