Valveman eaten by wild animals: Police

Police suspect that Yeregowda might have fallen unconscious in the forest.

A valveman from Thammaganahalli, missing for the past three months, was found dead on March 12 in a forest in Doddabelavangala.

Deceased Yeregowda (45), was married with three children.

Yeregowda and wife Lakshmi Devi used to have frequent quarrels. She left for her parents’ house three months ago.

Yeregowda made attempts to bring her back but in vain. He became an alcoholic and left home three months ago. 

After waiting for long, Yeregowda’s father Rangappa and his elder brother Lakshmi Narayana went in search. The father-son duo on Tuesday, identified Yeregowda’s blood soaked shirt and keys of their pump house from a clothes’ pocket in a forest.

Rangappa found a skull and a bone nearby with the soil around the area soaked in blood. Rangappa filed a complaint soon after. Doddabelavangala police suspect that Yeregowda might have fallen unconscious in the forest due to alcohol consumption. Wild animals might have attacked and consumed Yeregowda, the police said.

Police have sent samples to the forensic lab.
