Following a spat over the loss of a bike, a man allegedly killed his wife and committed suicide in Byadarahalli police station limits.
The incident came to light on Saturday. The deceased were identified as Suresh (40) and Hema (36). According to the police, the couple’s son Manjunath (20) had recently purchased a bike. His friend Madhu, who borrowed the vehicle, sold it without his knowledge. On learning this, Suresh yelled at his Hema for being negligent towards their son.
Suresh, in an inebriated state, pushed Hema forcefully on Friday night. She suffered a head injury and died on the spot. Later, Suresh committed suicide by hanging at his residence. Since the door was closed, their sons Manjunath and Chetan slept upstairs. The incident came to light on Saturday morning. The Byadarahalli police are investigating the case.
