Bengaluru woman kills man with iron rod | Bengaluru

A 48-year-old woman has been arrested for murdering her husband with repeated blows to the head with an iron rod, after a fight at night. The accused has been identified as Varalakshmi, who is a resident of the Sunkada cat of Bengaluru.

Reports say the couple, who had been married for about 28 years, once had arguments over domestic issues. The incident happened Sunday night, when the couple was still having a fight and sleeping. However, it is said that Varalakshmi got up at night, and her husband, Umesh, would fight with her again and kick her.

This seems to have angered Varalakshmi, who then decided to strike back and land several blows on her husband’s head with an iron rod. The 52-year-old Umesh is said to have died from severe bleeding.

Reports said Varalakshmi took her husband with her two daughters to a hospital and informed her husband’s family. Umesh’s brother, JM Satish, then went to the hospital but found that his brother was no longer there. Doctors had declared Umesh dead, according to reports.

Satish had apparently seen the wounds inflicted on his brother and is then said to have lodged a complaint with suspicion regarding his death to the police. Byadarahalli police then investigated a case of murder and arrested Varalakshmi. After questioning, it was revealed that Varalakshmi had killed Umesh.

The main reason behind the couple’s recurring fights in the house was apparently to do with Umesh’s expectations of financial help from the Varalakshmi family. Umesh had apparently run a business in finance and real estate and was sure that Varalakshmi’s family had not helped him financially.

Police have recorded statements of the couple’s two daughters and their neighbors and also bought CCTV images around their house for the collection of technical evidence.
