He Suddenly Reversed Truck While Driving, Says RelativeTIMES NEWS NETWORK
Bengaluru: A 25-year-old daily-wage worker has been arrested for allegedly running a truck over his mother outside their ancestral home in Kempathimmanahalli, around 10km from Kempegowda International Airport (KIA). Police suspect a family dispute spanning over five years triggered the gruesome act.
Vishwanathapura police from Bengaluru Rural district have booked H Arun Kumar, a quarry worker, under section 302 (murder) of IPC and seized the truck involved in the offence. It belongs to the owner of the quarry where Arun is employed, police said.
The incident occurred on Monday, when Arun’s mother, Jayamma Hanumanthappa, visited the house to offer prayers. The duo was not on good terms as Arun wanted to shift to the ancestral house but Jayamma was dead against it. A heated argument ensued between them, following which Arun reversed the truck and allegedly knocked down Jayamma, said a relative. A statement made by Jayamma’s nephew who witnessed the entire scene helped police nab him from his hideout.
Jayamma, who works as a housekeeping staffer with a private company in Yelahanka, is the first wife of Hanumanthappa S, who passed away in 2014. Trouble in the family had begun much before his death, when Hanumanthappa married another woman, Pushpa, in 2011.
According to police, both his wives used to quarrel regularly. Fed up of this, Jayamma shifted to Yelahanka. She took the responsibility of her four children, including a girl. Arun is the couple’s second son.
“But Jayamma’s decision didn’t go down well with Arun, who wanted to return to the ancestral house,” police said, adding that Jayamma’s elder son Ashok Kumar is a driver, while her daughter Dhanalakshmi is married to a tractor driver in Devanahalli. Arun and his younger brother Gagan work at stone quarries.
Hanumanthappa had placed a couple of idols outside the Kempathimmanahalli residence, which Jayamma worshipped every New Moon Day. “Even on Monday, which was another such day, Jayamma had come to offer puja. Arun arrived a little later. The duo got into a fight over returning to the family home. An enraged Arun got behind the truck’s wheel, turned on the engine and reversed suddenly. Jayamma, who was standing right behind the vehicle, was crushed under the rear wheel,” said Sunita Chandrashekar, an eyewitness and relative of Jayamma, in her police statement.
The house is spread over a quarter of an acre, and the land is said to be valued at Rs 1 crore, police said. “However, we have no evidence to prove a dispute over property was the motive behind the killing,” police said.
BENGALURU: MAN DRIVES LORRY OVER HIS MOTHER, KILLS HER
A 45-year-old woman has died under mysterious circumstances after coming under the wheels of a six-wheel lorry that was reportedly being driven by her son. Police have booked a case of murder against her son.
The incident happened at Kempammathimmanahalli village in Vishwanthapura police station limits on Monday afternoon. The victim, Jayashree, was a resident of Yeshwanthpura. Her son, who is suspected to have killed her, has been identified as Arun, 22. After the death of the woman, Arun is said to have fled from the spot.
“The victim is a widow. Her husband had married twice. Jayashree had left her two children with her husband’s second wife about 15 years back. On Monday, she had come for a pooja and is said to have had some altercation with the family members. Her son, who started the lorry, ran over his mother while reversing, killing her on the spot. Since there was an altercation before the death, we suspect that there could be some motive behind the killing. A case of murder under section 302 of the IPC has been registered against the victim’s son,” Superintendent of Police (Bengaluru Rural) Amit Singh told BM.
Gun owner gets bail in ‘uncle’s murder’ case
It is said that the victim’s children had no information of her as she had left them with her husband’s second wife and appeared suddenly on Monday. The second wife had taken care of the two children. The victim had come to perform pooja for the construction of a temple.
“We suspect there could be some dispute either related to property or financial dispute between the two women. We are not ruling out the possibility of the victim’s husband having owned a piece of land and the two women had differences over the rights of the said land. Even Arun could have been in favour of his step mother as his own mother had not taken care of him when he was still a small boy,” said an officer.
The Vishwanthapura police have registered a case. Though it is not proven the act was deliberate as Arun may not have seen his mother while reversing the vehicle, a case of murder was filed against him by a relative due to circumstantial evidence and the altercation.

KOLKATA: A 52-year-old senior commercial tax official was found dead at his Garia home at Ramkrishna Sarani near the Garia railway station late on Wednesday night. Sukriti Roywas hospitalised the day before for a sedative overdose. He was treated and discharged on Wednesday morning, only to be found dead a few hours later, seated on a wicker stool, his neck tied to the window grille of an under-construction puja room on the roof. Police have arrested his wife, Chandana.
According to police, Roy was the joint commissioner of commercial tax with the state Directorate of Commercial Taxes. His relatives and neighbours broke open a door to find his body . The victim’s father Subodh, a retired school tea cher, claimed that Chandana called him on Wednesday evening to inquire about Sukriti’s whereabouts. “She insisted that my son had come to my house,” said Subodh. This apparently led him to suspect that something was wrong. So Subodh and his other son Kajal rushed to Sukriti’s home only to find him dead. They informed police.
Chandana told TOI, “My husband was suffering from mental trauma and tried to kill himself as his brothers wanted to grab his property . He used to torture me on their insistence.”
Police said, prima facie, they need to ascertain the cause of death. The posture in which the body was found hints that the death may not be due to hanging. This, however, can only be confirmed by the autopsy report. Death by hanging will leave traces of a continuous ligature mark.”The post-mortem report is the key to our probe. We are not concluding anything. We have arrested his wife as the circumstantial evidences are contrary to her statements,” said Saikat Ghosh, Baruipur additional SP .
Sukriti’s family , however, alleged that Chandana used to torture him. Kajal alleged, “She (Chandana) killed him and tied him to the grille to show that he had committed suicide, to grab my brother’s property . We all six brothers used to stay in this house together. But after his second wedding in 2005, we shifted to a new house as his second wife made her displeasure with us clear. We haven’t entered the house in last 10 years.”
