A man allegedly attacked his wife with a screwdriver over a marital row at their house in Bandepalya.

Sudha M, a resident of Bandepalya, has filed a complaint against her tenant Saleem (38), a garments employee, for attacking his wife Naziya (32).

On Sunday, around 7 am, Sudha heard the noise of someone crying for help. After coming out of the house, she noticed that cries were coming from the second floor of her building.
