Bengaluru: Dejected after discovering about his wife’s illicit affair with a neighbour and hurt over wife’s false accusation of harassment against his family members, a 24-year-old man committed suicide leaving a three-page death note.
The incident took place on Thursday in HAL police station limits but came to light on Sunday. Before committing suicide, the deceased, Anthony Robert, also sent a message to his wife Prabha’s sister.
Based on the death note and complaint filed by his father Robert, the police have booked Prabha and her family members for abetment of suicide, the police said.
A native of Arisikere taluk in Hassan district, Anthony had married Prabha, a native of old Hubballi, four years ago and had a three-year-old boy. Theirs was a love marriage.
Prabha, who was residing in Whitefield before marriage, had an affair with one Anand Reddy, which she continued even after the marriage. After coming to know about the affair, Anthony had warned her and shifted to Hubballi. About 15 days ago, his father asked Anthony to come back to Bengaluru and stay at a house in Jagadish Nagar in HAL police station limits.
After shifting to Jagadish Nagar, Prabha allegedly contacted her paramour and resumed the affair.
Anthony who took up employment at a private company used to leave home in the morning at return in the evening. During that time, Prabha and Anand met at the house daily. However, on Thursday Anthony caught them red handed.
On the same night before hanging himself, he wrote a three-page death note in which he said he loved Prabha deeply and cannot see her with another person. He also accused Prabha’s mother and brothers of harassing him and requested the police to take action against them after his death.
The police have registered case against Prabha, her mother Alice Mary, brothers Anand and Raju and Prabha’s paramour Anand Reddy.
