BENGALURU: The murder of an eight-year-old girl by her mother and her lover came to light on Thursday. The child was murdered on Tuesday in Taverekere on Magadi Road on the outskirts of the city by being immersed into a water sump.

The deceased has been identified as Smitha, daughter of Nagaraju. The accused are Latha, (25), an employee in a garment factory and her paramour Ramesh, (28), who runs a restaurant on Magadi Road. Police said Smitha’s father Nagaraju was killed in a road mishap two years ago and after his death Latha had an affair with Ramesh. Ramesh had helped Latha lease a house in Byadarahalli and she was living along with Smitha and six-year-old son Rathan.

Smitha is said to have questioned her mother over Ramesh’s visit to their house. Ramesh and Latha planned to kill her and on Tuesday Latha asked her to check the water in the sump.

As she got close, Ramesh pushed her in and immersed her. They approached Tavarekere police to file a missing complaint. During interrogation, they confessed to the crime.
