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.

Man Found Dead

The Madivala police discovered the body of an unidentified 40-year-old person on a street at Sidharthnagar on Saturday. The face was slashed with blades. The police said the victim could be a labourer from North India. The miscreants dumped the body on the street after committing the crime elsewhere. Investigation is on.

Two Suicides

Two women ended their lives over health reasons in separate incidents in the city. The victims were identified as Sukanya S (20), a resident of Palace Guttahalli and Ramya Jyothish (21), a resident of Manjunathnagar.

Sukanya had been suffering from severe stomach ache for the last 15 days and was taken to hospital. She hanged herself at her residence after her brother Sudhakar left for the work on Saturday. Sukanya had been staying with her brother after her parents’ death. Vyalikaval police are looking into the case. In the other incident, Ramya, who had been married seven months ago, hanged herself at her residence at Manjunathnagar. According to Basaveshwaranagar police, Ramya had taken the extreme step due to health reasons. However, the police are yet to record the statement of Ramya’s parents.
