Mysuru: With just a day remaining for the May 12 Assembly polls, two youths were found murdered in two separate incidents reported today in city.

Mohammed Irfan, a goods auto driver by profession, was found struggling for life after being reportedly assaulted by unidentified miscreants near Indira canteen in KR Hospital premises at about 7am today, when he was shifted to K.R. Hospital. But he breathed his last an hour later, it is learnt.
