Bengaluru: Missing woman found dead in hotel | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: A 32-year-old anganwadi worker who went missing on Tuesday was found dead in a hotel room in Kalasipalya on Friday morning. Police have booked a case of murder against the woman’s neighbour based on her husband’s complaint.
Kamala M was a resident of Lalbagh Siddapura and worked at an anganwadi in Cement Colony. Her body was found hanging and was in a partially decomposed state. The death came to light when foul smell emanating from the room left the JC Road hotel staff worried. They checked the guest register and learnt the room had been booked in the name of Kamala around 11.30am on Tuesday.
“The hotel staff contacted her family members over phone and opened the door in their presence. They alerted Kalasipalya police who rushed to the spot,” a senior police officer said.
Sanjeev M Patil, deputy commissioner of police (west), said Kamala’s husband Obalesh L had filed a missing person’s complaint with Siddapura police on Thursday, two days after his efforts to trace her went in vain. The DCP said Kamala entered the hotel room with her neighbour Dileep Kumar, a tailor who also went missing on Tuesday, around 11.30am. CCTV footage shows Kumar leaving the hotel around 2.30pm.
Obalesh suspects Kamala had a relationship with Kumar and has accused the latter of killing her. “Kalasipalya police booked a case of murder against Kumar and probe is on,” Patil said. Police said Kamala was a mother of five girls. She was employed as an anganwadi worker for the past eight months. Kumar too is married and has two children.

Police believe Kamala was murdered and the needle of suspicion points towards Kumar. “We don’t know what happened between them. Going by circumstantial evidence, she seems to have been strangled before her body was hung from the ceiling fan. Kumar locked the hotel room from outside and left. He switched off his mobile around 2.30pm. We are trying to trace him. The motive behind the murder will be known once we nab him,” a police officer said.
