Udupi bizman's murder: No bail to his wife

The High Court of Karnataka on Thursday dismissed the bail application filed by Rajeshwari Shetty, accused in the murder of her husband, Bhaskar Shetty, an Udupi-based businessman.

Justice P S Dinesh Kumar rejected the bail application on the grounds that Rajeshwari is the main accused and that there is sufficient evidence against her to prove her role in the murder. The prosecution has contended that if she is released on bail, there are chances that she could destroy evidence against her in the crime.

Bhaskar Shetty went missing from his residence in Indrali in Udupi in July 2016 and a week later, his wife and son were arrested by the Manipal police. During interrogation, it was found that Bhaskar Shetty was burnt to death.

The DNA samples have also proven that the bones found were that of Bhaskar Shetty's.  The judge refused to grant bail to Rajeshwari.
