Arrested for murder

 The Bagalur police have arrested a man in connection with the murder of a 30-year-old woman. Kupendra, a resident of Bagalur, had allegedly killed Balamma.

Police said Balamma was married to Selvam from Tamil Nadu a few years ago and had an affair with Kupendra for the last one-and-half-years. Kupendra was upset with Balamma in the recent past as he suspected her of having affairs with a few other men, the police added.

She was alone at her house on April 6, after her husband went to his native place Krishnagiri.

She was found dead with severe burns the next day. Her father Rajendra lodged a complaint and stated he did not suspect Selvam.

During interrogation Kupendra confessed to the crime, the police added.

He quarrelled with Balamma over her alleged affairs and in a fit of rage, poured kerosene over her, set her ablaze and fled the scene, the police said.
