Police Constable allegedly murders wife

November 9, 2023

She had delivered a baby boy 11 days back

Chamarajanagar: A Police Constable allegedly murdered his wife at her parents’ house in Kolathur village of Hosakote taluk in Bengaluru Rural district.

The woman had delivered a baby boy just 11 days back and was in her parents’ house for post-delivery care.

While the deceased has been identified as Pratibha, the accused is Kishore, who is serving as a Police Constable at Chamarajanagar.

Kishore had married Pratibha a year ago and had doubts on her, which is said to be the reason for the murder.

Frequent fights began within a year of their marriage and the family members had advised them to lead a normal life many times.

Pratibha, who had delivered a baby boy, had come to her parents’ house and Kishore, in the guise of seeing the baby, had come to the house.

Finding Pratibha alone, Kishore allegedly suffocated her to death and tried to make it look like a suicide by tying a saree to the fan. But Pratibha’s parents came to the house suddenly, which shocked Kishore, who fled from the house.

It is learnt that Kishore, after murdering his wife, went to Kolar where he tried to commit suicide by consuming poison. Kishore is now undergoing treatment at an ICU in a private hospital at Kolar.

Hosakote Police, who have registered a case in this regard, are investigating.
