Automobile showroom supervisor too ends life

An interior decorator and an automobile showroom supervisor were found hanging at their houses in two separate incidents in the City on Monday.

Kumar, 27, the interior decorator, stayed in a house on the 1st Main, 2nd Cross in Krishnaiahpalya, Baiyappanahalli. He was married to Sharanya for two years and six months.

The couple did not have any children.

Police said Sharanya had gone to her parents’ house for Ugadi. In her absence, Kumar’s sister, Selvi, who stayed nearby, brought him coffee on Monday morning. But when she knocked on the door, there was no response from Kumar. Suspicious, she pushed the door hard and went in to find her brother hanging from the ceiling using his wife’s saree.

In her complaint to the police, Selvi has alleged that there was some marital problems between the couple and that Sharanya’s parents harassed her brother often.

In another incident in Peenya police limits, a supervisor of an automobile showroom was found hanging in his Kempe Gowdanagar residence. Prasant Jadhav, 38, was a native of Dharwad. He was married to Pavithra and the couple had an eight-month-old son named Samarth.

The incident came to light when Pavithra, who was out of town, telephoned him several times on Monday morning. When her husband did not answer the calls, she contacted the landlord and asked him to check on Prasant.

The owner knocked on the door several times. When there was no response, he peeped through the window and saw him hanging using a rope.

The police have found a death note in which Prasant has said no one was responsible for his death and has requested the police to ensure that his wife and son are looked after well.
