A jilted lover’s plan to teach a lesson to his lady love and her husband ended in anti-climax on Tuesday morning as he himself was killed by her husband in a brawl.
The incident took place at Channakeshavanagar near Parappana Agrahara. The deceased has been identified as Sathish (30), a resident of Anekal and a native of Tamil Nadu.
Shyamaraj (24), an interior designer, and his wife Rukmini were stabbed in the neck and face by Sathish. They have been admitted to a hospital and are out of danger, Parappa Agrahara police said.
According to the police, Shyamaraj married Rukmini, a resident of Kanakapura, just 15 days ago at Anekal. Sathish was in love with her since a few years. But she had ended her relationship with Sathish.
Police explained that Rukmini complained about fever and did not cook food on Tuesday morning. So, Shyam went out to bring breakfast. Sathish sneaked into the house at this time.
When Shyam returned home, he found Sathish hiding under the cot.
Angrily, Shyam questioned Sathish why he was hiding there. Sathish maintained that he is a relative of Rukmini and had come to meet her. He also added that he had also attended their marriage. He was not convinced with his reply. This led to a heated argument.

In the brawl, Shyam pushed Sathish to wall. He sustained serious internal injury on his head was rushed to the nearby private hospital where he was declared brought dead, they stated.
