Woman's murder case cracked

The police have cracked the recent death of a homemaker, Bharani, 26. A person has been arrested in connection with the crime. Set ablaze at Pulikeshi Nagar, Bharani succumbed to her injuries before help could arrive.

Investigating officers from the Pulikeshi Nagar police station, gained a valuable clue when they discovered that Bharani’s mobile phone was missing.

After tracing her call records, the investigating officers narrowed their list of suspects to Arun Kumar, who had been employed with Bharani at a private firm.

Investigations revealed that Arun and Bharani were in love but things took a turn for the worst when Bharani quit her job, and at the insistence of her parents, entered into an arranged marriage.

Police said that the two continued their affair secretly, even after the marriage. On August 27, Kumar went to Bharani’s house.

After an argument developed, Kumar allegedly smothered Bharani until she was unconscious.

Terrified that he had killed her, Kumar then arranged her on a cot and set her on fire.
To make it look as if the death was the result of a robbery gone wrong, Arun Kumar took away her jewellery and mobile phone.

The police have booked Kumar for murder.

Man killed

A man was killed and two others, including a pregnant woman, were injured in a serial accident on Srigandha Kaval Road on Friday.

The deceased has been identified as Raghavendra Bhagat, 30.  Bhagat and his pregnant wife Shwetha were on their way to Chandra Layout from Sunkadakatte on their two-wheeler when a speeding, sand-laden lorry struck their vehicle from behind.

This triggered a series of accidents on the traffic-heavy stretch of the road. Another bike and a mini truck were damaged.

When the truck struck Bhagat’s bike, his vehicle was sandwiched between the truck and another motorcycle in front. Sustaining severe injuries, he died on the away to a hospital.
The truck then rammed an electricity pole. The driver abandoned the vehicle and fled.

Shwetha and another bike rider, Santhosh, have been admitted to a nearby hospital. Kamakshipalya traffic police have registered a case and are investigating.
