Home alone woman murdered


The incident came to light as the milkman noticed that the gate and main door of the house were open and he informed the neighbours. The neighbours in turn called the police.
Shivarudraiah, the husband of Uma Devi is a headmaster in a government school in the same area. The childless couple were living in their own house and Uma was alone when the crime took place. Shivarudraiah had gone out of town to distribute marriage invitation cards of his sister’s daughter. They were originally from Narasapura in Kolar district and were living in Vijayanagar for the past two decades.

Sources said that around 8 pm on Sunday, Uma was engrossed in a marathon conversation with one of her relatives. Recently, the couple had decided to give their first floor house on rent and had also taken token advance from the prospective tenant.
The police have ruled out murder-for-gain and suspect the hand of known persons in the crime. There were no signs of  forcible entry into the house. Preliminary investigations have revealed that not more than two people are involved in the crime, suspected to have been committed with a steel rod. The weapon was not found at the crime spot. Meanwhile, the police are grilling the husband.
