Commissioner said the preliminary investigation revealed personal reasons for the murder. “Three squads have been formed to trace the accused. Investigation is on.”

Sources in police said victim was married 14 years ago but had divorced her husband. She tied the knot again with one Sudeep, a distant relative, from Madikeri. However, she divorced  even Sudeep.

Shreemathi’s family members had opposed her second marriage. As a result, she had distanced herself from her mother and sisters. After her divorce, she started staying with her aunt.

Shreemathi was running a fan repair shop at Attavar and had built a house on Amar Alva Road, four years ago. She used to go to her shop in her car. On Saturday, she went on her two-wheeler to the shop. However, she did not visit the shop. When she failed to receive calls, the family members complained to the police.
