Bengaluru: Weeks after son’s death, mother finds wife killed him with her lover’s help | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: A case of unnatural death of a 40-year-old man took a new twist three weeks later, after his mother overheard a conversation between her daughter-in-law’s siblings.
Acting on the elderly woman’s alert, Varthur police on Friday arrested the man’s wife and her lover for his murder.
On February 21, Chandrashekar from Siddapura in Varthur, died under mysterious circumstances. His wife, Pushpa, claimed he collapsed in the bathroom.
Chandrashekar was married to Pushpa for 13 years. He worked as a supervisor with a private firm, while Pushpa was a homemaker. Seven years ago, he had fallen from an under-construction building and undergone surgeries in the head. However, he continued to go to his workplace later.
The couple had no children; Chandrashekar’s mother Gayithramma, 60, lived in Halemirle, KR Nagar taluk, Mysuru district.
Around 8.30pm on February 21, Gayithramma received a call from Pushpa. She said Chandrashekar’s legs had been shaking and he was tired. Despite this, he went for a bath and collapsed. The fall, Pushpa said, resulted in him sustaining injuries where he had been operated earlier. He was rushed to a nearby private hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead, she added.
An unnatural death report (UDR) case was filed the next day and the doctors conducted postmortem. Probe revealed Pushpa was in love with a person named Manu for two years. A month before Chandrashekar’s death, elders in the family had told Pushpa to leave Manu. On March 5, she attempted suicide at her brother’s residence in Halemirle village and was later admitted to a hospital in Mysuru for treatment.
Around 9.30pm on March 8, Gayithramma went to the hospital to visit her daughter-in-law, where she overheard the conversation between Pushpa’s brother Vishwa and her elder sister Geetha about Pushpa still being in a relationship with Manu. They also discussed the possibility of she having killed her husband.
Alerted by Gayithramma, Varthur police took Pushpa and Manu into custody. They found that on the day Chandrashekar died, a drunk Manu had come to Pushpa’s house. The duo killed Chandrashekar by hitting him on the head with a rod. They later shifted the body from the hall to the bathroom to make it look like he had collapsed and sustained head injuries.
According to police sources, Chandrashekar was a drunkard and Pushpa was not happy about it. He’d often fight with Pushpa over her relationship with Manu.
