BENGALURU: Mahalakshmi Layout police on Monday arrested the BMTC conductor Madhu who allegedly killed woman advocate Jyothi after she rejected his marriage proposal. He was absconding ever since he killed the advocate in full public view near Saptagiri Convention Hall last Saturday.

Madhu

The accused Madhu (28) was nabbed by a special police team in Madikeri with the help from the local police. During interrogation, he confessed that he decided to kill her after she started avoiding him. She had also turned down his repeated proposals.

They were childhood friends at their village in Kanakapura. Jyothi wanted him to be a mere friend and advised to marry another girl as she wanted to achieve more in her profession. Frustrated over this, he attacked her in full public view and escaped. He had come in a car along with his friend Shivaramu, who was nabbed by locals and handed over to the police soon after the incident.

As Jyothi was practising with a senior advocate in the city, the Advocates’ Association has requested its members not to appear in any court on behalf of Madhu for legal help.
