BENGALURU: Ramamurthy Nagar police have solved the murder of 56-year-old woman with the arrest of her daughter-in-law. Badrunnisa was found murdered on Monday. Police said Rs 2 lakh and three gold chains were stolen from her house.

The accused has been identified as Nasiara Begum (35), who works as a teacher in a Montessori school. Begum, a resident of Hebbal, had married Badrunnisa’s son Imam a few years ago. They were all staying in a rented house in Subramanya Layout in Ramamurthy Nagar.

A senior police officer said Badrunnisa had arranged the money and gold chains for her younger daughter Ayesha’s wedding, fixed for next month.

Begum wanted to pay Rs 3 lakh to the owner of the house she lived in as she wanted to take the house on lease. When she came to know about the cash and gold chains with Badrunnisa, she hatched a plot to kill her.

On Monday, Begum left for the school around 9 am and returned home around 10.40 am. She then attacked Badrunnisa with a knife and slit her throat. She locked the house from outside and went back to the school.

Around 1.30 pm, Imam came home for lunch and found his mother in a pool of blood and alerted police.

Begum confessed to the crime during interrogation. She also revealed that she killed Badrunnisa without any other person’s help.
