Former lover attacks woman

Bangalore: April 3, 2013 DH News Service

Geetanajali, 21, a second year diploma student, was on Tuesday attacked with a sharp weapon by her former lover who was angry over her marriage being fixed with another man.

Geetanajali, who is pursuing her diploma in Computer Science at Panchasheela Polytechnic College, BHEL Layout, Rajarajeshwari Nagar, was in relationship with Jayaprakash, 23, an office assistant at a private firm in City, for two years. Her father Prem Kumar, a resident of Okalipuram and a mason, was opposed to the affair as they belonged to different castes. Therefore, the two had broken up.

Police said Jayaprakash and his family had recently shifted to Chennai, where he had got a good job. Jayaprakash came to Bangalore on Tuesday morning. After speaking to Geetanajali over phone, the two met at Mysore Road Satellite Bus Stand.
They took a bus from there and alighted at BHEL Layout, where a tiff ensued between them.

Jayaprakash allegedly slashed Geetanajali with a sharp weapon on her left chin. As she fell unconscious and bled heavily, he fled the scene. The public rushed her to BGS Global Hospital, where she is being treated.

According to Rajarajeshwarinagar Police, who have registered a case, Geetanjali told them that Jayaprakash attacked her with a sharp weapon which she couldn’t recognise, as she fainted soon after the assault. A search is on for Jayaprakash.

Miscreants set car ablaze

A car belonging to Srinivasulu Naidu, manager of Anupriya Convention Hall, was set ablaze by miscreants in Avali Naidu Layout near Abbaiah Naidu Studios.
By the time fire tenders reached the spot, the car was completely gutted.

According to Subramanyapura Police, the car was dragged onto the middle of the road and set afire. The involvement of some miscreants from the area is being suspected. Though Naidu’s house was behind the convention hall, he used to park his car beside the conventional hall, in front of a neighbour’s house. This had apparently been a bone of contention between the neighbour and Naidu over the past one-and-a-half years.

Though he was repeatedly asked not to park his car in front of others’ houses, Naidu had not bothered.

Police suspect someone had resorted to this extreme step to ‘teach’ him a lesson. A case has been registered and investigation is on.
