Man strangles wife as she accuses him of affair
A 26-year-old man is suspected to have stra­ngled his wife when she accused him of cheating on her. The incident occurred at Muniswamappa Layout in Yelahanka New Town, north Bengaluru, between 11.30 pm, Saturday, and 1 am, Sunday, police said. Nalini N (23) picked a fight with her husband, Prathap D, when he came home on Saturday night. He got offended, pounced on her and ended up strangling her. He then called his parents, informed them what had happened and fled.

Nalini was from Manniganahalli in Kuduru, Magadi taluk, Ramanagaram district, while Prathap hails from Nagamangala in Mandya district and is a cab driver with Uber. The couple had an inter-caste love marriage two years ago in the face of strong opposition from their families. The marriage faced problems soon afterwards. Things got worse nine months ago when Nalini delivered a child. She didn’t like the fact that her husband often returned home late and in an inebriated condition. She suspected that he was having an extramarital affair and often quarrelled with him. She even brought the issue to her family’s attention. Following a plaint by Nalini’s father Narasimharaju, cops arrested Prathap and produced him before the magistrate who has remanded him in judicial custody.
