Married woman kills paramour

He used to harass her frequently


The police said, Radhamma (36), was allegedly having an affair with Raju (45). Around 1 am, they got into an argument and in the melee Radhamma pulled out a hammer and hit Raju on his head, killing him on the spot. Interestingly, Radhamma herself called the jurisdictional police and pretended to be innocent. After hours of drama, she was cornered by the police and later she confessed to the crime.

Sources said, Radhamma hails from Hosur Doddi near Channapatna. After she lost her husband a few years ago, she had left her two sons at her relative’s house. Living in her own house, Radhamma reportedly got involved with Raju. Raju is from Tiruvannamalai and was working as a chef. For the last three years, he was living with her and used to abuse her. On the ill-fated day, it reached the peak as he came home drunk and attacked her.

Two kidnap cases

Two kidnap cases - one relating to a minor girl and the other involving a businessman -  were reported in the City in the last 24 hours.

Nearly a month ago, a 16-year-old girl, was allegedly kidnapped by a 20-year-old Muthuraj living in Kamakshipalaya. On finding his daughter, studying in 10th standard missing, the victim’s father filed a complaint on October 20. Two days ago, the girl came back to her father’s house.  

On November 17,  the girl and her father filed a complaint with the Kamakshipalaya police station alleging kidnap, abuse and torture by Muthuraj.

According to the police the girl and Muthuraj were secretly married at a road-side temple in Kamakshipalaya, with the aid of three of his friends. “The couple had rented a house at Kolratti in Tavarekere for nearly a month, where the girl claimed to have been abused by her husband,” a police official said. She has alleged that Muthuraj used to beat her
everyday and lock her up inside the house before leaving for work.

Muthuraj worked as an industrial machine operator in Tavarekere. Three days ago, the girl escaped from the house and landed at her parents’ house on November 16.

The Kamakshipalaya police has taken all the four accused into custody. A case has been registered against Muthuraj, the prime accused and three of his friends for abetting a minor’s marriage. After hours of interrogation, the girl confessed to have consented to the marriage with Muthuraj, with whom she was in love.

In another incident, Ravikumar Nayak (35), a businessman, was kidnapped on November 14 by four miscreants, from Rajarajeshwari Nagar. According to the police, Nayak, who had left his tractor for repair in Muneshwaranagar, was whisked away by four persons.
The victim, in his complaint lodged four days later, claimed that he was kidnapped and that they had withdrawn Rs 32,000 from his bank account. “This apart, we have also received a complaint from the victim, who alleged that they forcefully made him sign on Form 29 and 30 (transfer of vehicles),” a police official said.

The police now suspect that the victim might have been kidnapped, as he had borrowed money from the kidnappers. However, victim Ravikumar Nayak quoted the death of his relative in Andhra Pradesh, as the reason for delay in filing the complaint.
