Man murders wife's paramour
The dead has been identified as Imran Pasha, 23, a resident of Chikkabettanahalli who was working at a stone quarry. Police said he was in love with Suraya Banu, 20, also from the same village. Banu married Tansheer Pasha, 22, six months ago.
A few months after the marriage Tansheer, who worked as a lorry driver at the same quarry, came to know of Banu’s affair with Imran and that her parents had forced her to marry him.
Police sources told Deccan Herald that Tansheer had earlier warned Imran Pasha against continuing his relationship with Banu, as she was now his wife.
But the two were learnt to have continued their affair. On Friday evening, when Tansheer returned home from work, he saw the two chatting in his house. A fight ensued, and in a fit of rage, Tansheer assaulted Imran with an iron rod and stabbed him in the throat, the sources said.
Delay in treatment
A seriously injured Imran rushed to the Yelahanka Government Hospital, from where he went to two private hospitals, Ketam Hospital in Vidyaranyapura and M S Ramaiah Hospital. However, he failed to get proper treatment and was taken to Bowring Hospital late in the night, where he died, the sources said.
The doctors handed over the body to his family after the autopsy. Yelahanka New Town Police arrested Tansheer on charges of murder.
They said that the injury in Imran’s throat was one-and-a-half inches deep and he would not have died if he had received proper treatment in time.
