Murthy got parole two days ago and went home. Early on Sunday, his wife left for her native home in a neighbouring village along with their daughter. Some time later, Murthy spoke to his wife over the phone and told her that he would be coming there around lunch time.
When Murthy did not turn up, the family grew suspicious and tried contacting him over the phone. When there was no response even after repeated attempts, they rushed home and found Murthy and Vishnu hanging from the ceiling.   

Bagalagunte police were informed about the incident.Preliminary investigations revealed Murthy was sentenced  to life imprisonment for killing his brother-in-law over a family row.“Murthy was in prison since eight years and was out on parole. He was emotionally attached to his son. The exact reason for the suicide is yet to be ascertained,” a senior police officer said.
