Mother bludgeons daughter to death

For neglecting family, rude behaviour

Narayanamma (58) has been arrested for killing her daughter Saraswathi (30). The family was from Andhra Pradesh and had been living in Bangalore for the last ten years. The family owned a few houses and had rented out some. Saraswathi and her husband were living in one of them.

Saraswathi was married to Narayanamma's brother Jayaramulu. Since Jayaramulu was a small time worker and an alcoholic, Saraswathi was always cribbing and accusing the mother of ruining her life.

Of late, Saraswathi was allegedly neglecting the family, behaving rudely and returning home late. Saraswathi and Jayaramulu had a tiff on Wednesday night on the same issue.

Fed up of her daughter's attitude, Narayanamma intervened and advised her to take care of the family, behave herself and respect her husband. Following a heated argument, Saraswathi pushed her mother. Enraged over the turn of events, Narayanamma got hold of a club and hit Saraswathi.
Saraswathi was the eldest among the four children of Narayanamma.

Doctor kills self
A depressed ophthalmologist hanged himself at his Kengeri Upanagar residence on Wednesday.

The police gave the name of the deceased as Dr Prem Kumar Jain (56). He, along with his wife, had gone to a relative's house in Vijayanagar. After returning home he locked himself in the bathroom and hanged from a window grill using a veil.
In another incident, a 60-yer-old woman suffering from stomach ailments consumed poison and died at her Malgala residence in Jnanabharthi.

The deceased Gangamma was tired of consulting doctors and visiting hospitals. Unable to bear the pain, she took the extreme step.

In yet another case of suicide attempt, a flower vendor doused herself with kerosene and set herself ablaze near a railway track in Singiyanapalya in Mahadevpura.

The victim, Sarojamma is admitted to Victoria Hospital with more than 55 percent burns.
