UDUPI: Murdered businessman Bhaskar Shetty’s mother-in-law, Sumathi Shetty (70) on Monday alleged that it was K Bhaskar Shetty who had threatened to kill Rajeshwari earlier, for questioning him over an extramarital affair in Saudi Arabia.
Sumathi told reporters that her daughter would have killed her husband in a fit of rage, but Bhaskar too would have done the same to her, if she had not done it.
She said after Rajeshwari killed Bhaskar, the funeral rites were conducted in the priest’s house in Nandalike.
“Bhaskar had married a nurse in Saudi Arabia and had fathered a child who is three-and-a-half-years-old now. This came to the knowledge of Rajeshwari, to which she objected,” Sumathi said.
