Man kills brother over 'affair' with wife

A 28-year-old Nepalese man is accused of bludgeoning his younger brother to death for having an affair with his wife.

Veer Bahadur, a security guard at an apartment complex, suspected that his brother, Raj Bahadur, was having an affair with his wife. The siblings, who hail from Nepal, often quarrelled over the matter. They were living with their respective families in Munireddy Layout, Mahadevapura, east Bengaluru. Raj also worked as a security guard.

On Friday night Veer came home and quarrelled with his wife, suspecting that she had met his brother when he was away. He then grabbed a shovel, went to Raj’s house, bludgeoned him to death and fled the spot. Police tracked him down on the basis of a complaint filed by Raj’s wife. They also recovered the shovel. A court has remanded Veer in judicial custody.
