Karnataka Supreme Court has denied anticipatory bail to Anish Kodayan Koroth, against whom police have registered a case of conspiracy to commit suicide in connection with the death of his wife, Kerala-based journalist Shruthi Narayanan, in Bengaluru’s Whitefield area in March .

It has been more than two months since the death of the 35-year-old Reuters journalist and police have yet to locate the suspect’s whereabouts. Bengaluru police have also sent men to Kerala to track him down.

Lawyers representing Anish had filed a bail lawsuit in another court. After it was rejected, they filed one in the high court. That too was rejected on 19 May.

The deceased had written three suicide notes – recovered after she was found dead in her hometown in Bengaluru – in which she claimed that her husband would harass her and said she was happy about escaping a ‘torturous life’ with him.

In one of the notes she wrote: “I will end my life and two people would be the happiest. You and I. I am happy because I escape this torturous life and you will be happy because you do not have me in your life. “

Anish was apparently in Taliparamba, a municipality in the Kannur district of Kerala, on the day Shruthi was found dead.
