Woman found dead

A 41-year-old woman died under mysterious circumstances on Thursday night at Kudlu in Parappana Agrahara.

The deceased has been identified as Umashankari. She was married to Kumaraswamy and the couple have a 14-year-old son. On Thursday evening, Kumaraswamy rushed his wife to Jayanagar government hospital where she died.

Kumaraswamy told the police his wife had consumed sleeping pills as she was suffering from headache, and might have died of a drug overdose. However, Umashankari’s mother Jayamma has lodged a police complaint alleging that her daughter was harassed by Kumaraswamy and his mother, forcing her to commit suicide.

Parappana Agrahara police have detained Kumaraswamy and his mother on the charges of abetting suicide.

Murder case cracked

Mahadevapura police have arrested Kodanda Reddy of Nellore in Andhra Pradesh in connection with the murder of a senior citizen who was found strangled to death at her house in B Narayanapura in the City.

Police have recovered 100 gram gold jewellery belonging to Kondamma from Reddy.
Kondamma was living alone on the ground floor of her son Srinivasulu’s house. He lived on the first floor.

Investigations revealed that Reddy was working as a construction labourer and often visited the City on work. Police said he used to visit his elder cousin Kondamma who helped him monetarily as he was in deep debt. On January 28, Reddy asked Kondamma for money to repay his debt and his children’s school fees. When she refused, he murdered her and made away with her jewellery, police said.
