3 end lives in City

Three people were found hanging in three separate incidents in the City.

A 23-year-old homemaker was found hanging at her house in Vijayanagar on Tuesday.
Vijayalakshmi was married to Vijay Kumar Nimbaragi, an engineer, and lived at 5th ‘A’ Cross, Subbanna Garden in Vijaynagar. She was a native of Banahatti in Jamakhandi taluk in Bagalkot district. The couple have a two-year-old daughter.

Police said Vijayalakshmi was suspected to have hanged herself with a veil from the ceiling, when her husband was away in office. Her daughter had gone out to play.

A neighbour who brought the child home found Vijayalakshmi’s body hanging. Other neighbours rushed to the house and informed Vijay Kumar.

Police are trying to ascertain the reason for the extreme step. “We searched every corner of the house but did not find a death note. We are waiting for the arrival of the victim’s parents,” said a police inspector.

The body was shifted to Victoria Hospital. The victim’s parents are expected to arrive in the City on Wednesday.

In another incident at Byadarahalli, a 22-year-old woman was found hanging at an under-construction building on Monday night. The deceased, Kumari was a resident of Ganjam near Srirangapatna. The victim’s father died long ago and she was staying with her mother Jayamma and elder sister Manjula.

The family is originally from Tumbunerale village near Nanjangud and had settled down at Ganjam 15 years ago, police said.

Kumari told her mother and sister on Monday afternoon that she was going out and would return soon.

However, she went to a house under construction in Byadarahalli and hanged herself from a bamboo beam with her veil. The construction workers who came for work on Tuesday morning, were shocked to see the body. The reason for Kumari’s extreme step is yet to be ascertained, police said.

Youth found hanging

A 20-year-old man was found hanging at a house in Mangammanapalya in Madiwala.
Madhavaraj, a resident of Electronics City, was found hanging at the residence of Nandish and Suma.

Nandish and Suma are neither related to Madhavaraj nor are his friends, but he frequented their house. Police remained clueless as to why he was found dead at their residence.

Police said Madhavaraj worked for Agri-Gold Finance and suspected that he had misused office money and decided to end his life. Strangely, Suma was on the terrace of the house when Madhavaraj took the extreme step, police said. No death note was found.

Man robbed of Rs 2.5 lakh

Unidentified miscreants robbed a man of Rs 2.5 lakh, after diverting his attention, on Tuesday. 

Rajagopal, administrator at Iskcon Gokulam Heritage and a resident of Doddakallasandra, was on his way to a bank to deposit the money, when he stopped to drink tender coconut water around 12.30 pm.

When the driver (Shivakumar) had got down to buy the tender coconut water, the miscreants  who arrived in a two-wheeler told Rajagopal that his driver had dropped Rs 55 on the ground.

When he got off the car to pick up the money, Rs 2.5 lakh was stolen from his car, the police said. The miscreants had themselves dropped the money - three Rs 5 and four Rs 10 notes.

When Rajagopal alighted on the side where the miscreants who had dropped the money stood, two more miscreants came on a bike to the other side and took away the bag, containing the money, which was kept in the car.

The police said the miscreants were aged between 22 to 25 years. Subramanyapura police have registered a case.
