Man uses electrocution to kill banker fiance of colleague

A father-of-two used electrocution to kill the fiance of a colleague he had a  crush on. Police  zeroed in on the suspect after checking the call detail record of the victim's phone.  

Shivabasave Gowda (26), of Banashankari, had a huge crush on a female colleague, though he is married and has two children. The two worked at a real estate company. Gowda is a marketing manager there.  Around four months ago, the woman got engaged to Anil Kumar, a deputy manager at Kotak Mahindra Bank, MG Road.  

Once Gowda learnt about the engagement, he decided to eliminate Kumar. The woman, however, was unaware of his intentions. Three months ago,  Gowda secretly took Kumar's number from her phone. He bought a SIM card to communicate with Kumar and didn't share the number with anyone.  

One day, Gowda called up Kumar and introduced himself as Yogesh on the pretext that they had met during an interview. He  started calling him often and both became friends.  

On December 4, Gowda got to know that Kumar was travelling to Uttari, a village on the outskirts of Bengaluru. He invited him over for dinner at a restaurant on the outskirts. While returning from the restaurant, Gowda pulled in  at a transformer saying he wanted to relieve himself. As part of his plan, he had connected a  400 kV wire to the transformer. He quickly put on hand gloves, picked up the wire and shoved it into Kumar who was close to him. Kumar was electrocuted.  

The next day, the Kaggalipura police found Kumar's body. Investigation showed that Kumar had left home to meet a friend named Yogesh. Police checked Kumar's call log and zeroed in on Gowda. They said Gowda had meticulously planned the murder  and even  practised it a few times.
