Bengaluru: Police yesterday said they are looking for clues in connection with the stabbing of a techie from Odisha to death here.

Pranay Misra (28), hailing from Bhubaneshwar, was on his way to meet his girlfriend on his scooter when two motorcycle borne youths accosted and stabbed him multiple times near Chocolate factory on Tavarekere Main Road on Monday, they said. He tried to escape but was chased and killed.

Misra had moved to Bengaluru four years ago and was working as a software engineer in Accenture, police said. "This does not look like a murder for gain as all his belongings like his purse and mobile phone, were all intact. Our investigations are on. So far, we do not have anything to share," said a police official at Madivala police station, under whose jurisdiction the murder took place.

Police said they have registered a complaint lodged by his sister Prachi, who is also a techie and stays in Marathahalli with her husband.
