Woman kills daughter

Jajpur: A woman reportedly murdered her minor daughter by throwing her in a village pond in Mugpal village in Kuakhia police station limits in the district late last night. The accused has been identified as Sony Behera, 26.

A police source said the woman was married to Bijay Kumar Behera, 30, around seven years ago and they lived in Mugpal village. Behera was a drum beater by profession, had two children, a six-year-old son and a three-year-old daughter. The husband had gone out to beat drum on Friday. The couple had a quarrel over some domestic issue on that day. He had not given any money to the woman and therefore she could not prepare food for herself, in-laws and two children on Saturday. The entire family had to starve.

“The couple had a quarrel over some domestic issue and the husband went out to beat the drums on Friday. As he had not given any money to his wife during his departure, the family had nothing to eat on Saturday. While the son was sleeping with her grand mother in a separate room, the accused was sleeping with her three-year-old daughter, identified as Barsha in the other room,” said Kuakhia Police station inspector-in-charge Ashis Kumar Sahu. He said on late Saturday night while Barsha was asleep, the woman threw her into the village pond.

“The woman went to her parental home in Mahapur village in Jajpur Sadar police limits on morning and told them that she killed her daughter,” Sahu said.

Later, the family members and local residents recovered the body from the pond and informed the police. The police said the body was sent to district head quarters hospital for post-mortem.

Honour killing’: Man poisons daughter, burns body in field

Sushma

Mysuru: A honour killing incident has been reported from Gollanabeedu village in
HD Kote taluk of the district, where a man allegedly poisoned his daughter and later burnt her body for being in love with a Dalit youth.

The victim has been identified as Sushma (22). The police arrested Sushma’s father Kumar, on Thursday.

It is said that Sushma, who belongs to the Vokkaliga community, was in love with Umesh, a resident of Alanahalli village on the outskirts of Mysuru.

She had eloped with Umesh two years ago and a few village elders had brought the girl back to the village after advising both Umesh and Sushma to stay away from each other.

However, when Sushma’s parents recently told her to marry a boy from their community, she opposed the marriage and was adamant on marrying only Umesh. In a fit of rage, her parents had allegedly poisoned her on February 22 and burnt her body in their field. They had even ploughed their land so that the villagers do not doubt them. As Sushma disappeared suddenly, it raised suspicion among the villagers. Her relatives alerted the police, after which the incident came to light.

Police, who arrested Kumar, brought him to the land where he had burnt the body of his daughter, and conducted a mahazar.

Additional SP Rudramuni said that one of the constables, who came to know that Kumar had killed his daughter and burnt the body, immediately brought it to the notice of the higher officials. A suo motu case was registered and a probe conducted, he said.

MYSURU: An anonymous letter to Superintendent of Police Ravi D Channannavar has helped in unravelling a murder case that was committed on February 21.A man had allegedly murdered his 20-year-old daughter, only to save his honour, as she had married a youth belonging to a different caste four months ago.

Sushmita

The girl, identified as Sushmita, was killed allegedly by her father at Gollanabeedu village in H D Kote taluk of the district. While the girl’s father Kumar has been arrested, her mother Jayanti and paternal uncle Kempa (Kumar’s younger brother) — co-accused in the case — are absconding.The girl was allegedly force-fed soft drinks spiked with poison by her father. Kumar later hanged her body from a pole and set it on fire in his fields. He later tilled the land using his tractor to destroy the crime scene.

The girl was in love with Umesh from the neighbouring Halahalli village. Sushmita and Umesh knew each other since high school and were in love with each other.  Sushmita’s parents, who got to know about the affair, stopped sending her to college. Sushmita later eloped with Umesh and they got married at Maramma Temple at Hulikere near KRS in Mandya district four months ago.

Following Kumar’s complaint to the village panchayat, the couple was summoned to the panchayat and ordered to stay separately for some time. Sushmita was living with her aunt in Hulikere.  Sushmita’s parents thought she had caused a grave insult to the family by marrying out of caste. Sushmita has two younger sisters.

On the day of the incident, Kumar and his wife went to Hulikere and convinced Sushmita to come home on the pretext of celebrating her birthday though it fell on a different date.  Kumar, who allegedly took his daughter to a shed in his farm, tortured her throughout the day before forcing her to consume the soft drink spiked with pesticide in the night. He then hanged her body from a pole. Meanwhile, Umesh has gone into hiding ever since Sushmita was killed, said a source.

BAREILLY : A 40-year-old man allegedly killed his wife — a mother of six-year-old twin sons — after she refused to prepare meal for his father who is suffering from cancer in Thakurdwara town of Moradabad district on Wednesday.
According to police, the accused, Onkesh Kumar, alias, Umesh, 40, was fed up with his 36-year-old wife Rina’s indifferent attitude towards his parents. Unhappy with her behaviour, Umesh’s parents returned to their village Dulhapur Amanatavad last week, said police.According to police, Onkesh’s father Rampal Singh — a cancer patient — is a retired government teacher who bears the burden of the entire family on his pension since his son is jobless.After his parents left for the village, Onkesh hired one Sunil, 30, a resident of Rina’s parental village Alhepur in Bijnor, on a contract for Rs 30,000 to eliminate Rina, said police.Sunil came to Moradabad on Tuesday night and stayed with Onkesh’s family. “According to their plan, they laced Rina’s tea in the morning and when she went unconscious, they strangled her,” police said.Circle officer Vishal Yadav told TOI, “Initially, Onkesh stated that his wife and he had consumed the intoxicated tea and Rina might have died of over dose. He further said that his mother, who arrived here on Wednesday morning from her village, found them unconscious and raised an alarm. Following which they were rushed to the Moradabad district hospital, where doctors declared Rina dead upon arrival.”

“However, according to the post-mortem report, Rina had died of strangulation. This made us suspicious, and we talked to their children, who disclosed about Sunil’s visit,” said Yadav, adding Sunil had come out of jail only last month in connection with his uncle’s murder.

“We detained both Onkesh and Sunil. During interrogation, Onkesh said his wife had refused to prepare separate meal for his ailing father, even as doctors have advised him to take extra precautions while having food. Onkesh also said that she also misbehaved with his parents, following which they left for village.”

Yadav said, “The duo served spiked drink to Rina and killed her. Then, Sunil left, and when Onkesh’s mother arrived, he acted as an unconscious person.”

CO further said, “We booked the duo under IPC section 302 (murder) and produced them in a court which sent them to jail.”

Chennai: Man kidnaps, kills nine-year-old boy in Selaiyur

CHENNAI: A nine-year-old boy was allegedly kidnapped and beaten to death with an iron rod by a man known to the family on Wednesday. Police said they recovered the disfigured body of the child, Rithesh Sai, from an apartment at Indira Nagar in Selaiyur on Thursday, based on information given by accused E Nagaraj (27).

Police said Nagaraj picked up the child from his tuition centre at Nesapakkam around 6.30 pm on Wednesday, on the pretext that his mother Manjula had wanted to bring him home early.

“Since Nagaraj was well-known to the family, Rithesh went along with him. They reached Pallavaram on Nagaraj’s bike and ate in a hotel. After that, Nagaraj left his bike there and took Rithesh in an auto to a flat in a gated community at Selaiyur, which was built by a construction company in which he is working as a marketing manager,” said an investigation officer.

The gated community has over 250 houses and most of them are occupied and Nagaraj was in charge of selling the remaining flats.

“Around 7.30 pm, Nagaraj allegedly slit the boy’s throat with a broken glass bottle and hit him with an iron rod, killing him on the spot. He also reportedly tried to commit suicide by drinking some liquid used to clean the floor. Later, he locked the house with the boy’s body inside, went to Perungalathur and boarded a bus to Vellore,” the officer said.

Meanwhile, the boy’s father S Karthikeyan, who went to pick up his son from the tuition centre, learnt that Nagaraj had taken his son and did not return home. He filed a complaint with the MGR Nagar Police that his son was kidnapped. A special team was launched to search for the boy.

Meanwhile, the police nabbed Nagaraj on Thursday morning, who confessed to the crime and told the police that the body was in the apartment in Selaiyur.

Karthikeyan told reporters at the MGR Nagar Police Station that he suspected Nagaraj to have murdered his son to get all property registered in his wife’s name. “When my son went missing, I even asked my wife if she had a fight with Nagaraj and if that was the reason why he kidnapped Rithesh,” said Karthikeyan.

Preliminary probe revealed that Nagaraj lived in the same area where the family resided. “Often Karthikeyan would pick a fight with Nagaraj as he suspected the latter of having an intimate relationship with his wife Manjula. Six months ago, Karthikeyan filed a complaint with the MGR Police that Nagaraj had grabbed his property through his wife. Nagaraj was arrested and later released on bail,” said the police officer, explaining the animosity between Nagaraj and Karthikeyan.

The murder of the child has sent shock waves in the private apartment. One of Nagaraj’s colleagues said, “He (Nagaraj) would never talk much, but I have seen him bring the boy (Rithesh) to the apartment before. Though he stayed in Ramapuram, he brought the child here to play in the park sometimes.”
Nagaraj has been remanded in judicial custody.

    Arrest sparks speculation of breakthrough in Gauri caseA Rebel with Her CauseA Special Investigation Team (SIT), probing the September 5, 2017 murder of journalist-cum-activist Gauri Lankesh, 55, outside her residence in Bengaluru, is set to seek the custody of a 37-year-old man who was arrested on February 18 for illegal possession of bullets. K T Naveen Kumar, who hails from south Karnataka, was arrested by the Bengaluru Police on February 18 following a complaint by crime branch officials that he was carrying bullets at a city bus stand. Investigation in the case has revealed that Kumar, during his conversation about guns and ammunition with some of his friends from Maddur, had alluded to his links to the murder case.

SIT officials have already questioned Kumar on a few occasions till now.

Kumar’s alleged links with Hindu Yuva Sena, right-wing radical Hindutva group, and Sanatan Sanstha outfit and its affiliate the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti were also established during the probe. Over 15 rounds of cartridges of .32 calibre, which are the same as the 7.65 mm cartridges, were seized from his possession.

Gauri was shot dead with a 7.65 mm country-made pistol by unidentified men in the drive way of her residence. CCTV footage showed that the man, who was wearing a helmet, had conducted a recce of the house hours before the crime. The physique of the man is in close resemblance to that of Kumar, according to officials.

A forensic analysis of the four empty cartridges and four bullets which were fired at Gauri show that the markings on them are similar to those on the bullets and cartridges which were used to kill Kannada scholar and researcher M M Kalburgi, 77, in northern Karnataka town of Dharwad on August 30, 2015.

Reports also suggest that the two, along with leftist thinker Govind Pansare, were shot with the same 7.65 mm pistol. At least five bullets were fired at Govind Pansare and his wife Uma Pansare from two country-made guns on February 16, 2015 in Kohlapur. Investigation revealed that the second gun which was used to kill the Pansares was the same one used to kill rationalist Narendra Dabholkar (69) on August 20, 2013 in Pune.

      ‘Save me from my husband’: TN abuse victim kills self, days after video cry for help

      A video of 29-year-old Sathya is doing the rounds on the internet, where she begs people watching to save her from her husband.

    It is a video that pulled at Tamil Nadu’s heartstrings. A distraught woman with visible wounds on her face can be seen breaking down on camera. She alleges domestic abuse at the hands of her husband and begs the people watching the video to rescue her and her child. This heartbreaking request surfaced on the internet on February 27 and has since been doing the rounds on social media.

    But when TNM tracked down the origins of the video to Vellore district, it was too late. The woman, who has now been identified as Sathya had killed herself two days before her desperate plea went viral. The 29-year-old, who resides in Natrampalli, had hanged herself, unable to bear the alleged domestic abuse.

    Her 36-year-old husband, Sampath has been arrested by the police and booked under section 306 (abetment to suicide) of the Indian Penal code. This after Sathya’s mother filed a complaint following her death.

    The Natrampalli police told TNM that the video that Sathya sent was actually shot a month before it surfaced. It was sent to a relative as a plea for help, following which the families of the couple intervened and counselled them. Despite this, however, Sampath allegedly continued to abuse his wife.

    In the video, that was taken in an open plot near the house, Sathya can be heard saying, “For god’s sake, anybody who is watching this video please help me. People who are watching this video will have a sister or daughter like me. My husband is really torturing me. Neither my father nor my siblings are there to help me. All I have is my mum. My father died when I was a baby and my mother struggled a lot to raise me. I trusted him and came here. But he has locked me up in a room without food or whatever. He doesn’t let me sleep peacefully and he has been torturing me like this. I have gove many times to the police station. Whenever I go they just console me and send me back. If I go away on my own, he is threatening to kill me. He is spreading bad rumours about me and tarnishing my reputation. If I leave from here I want to leave with a good name. Somebody please help me. My house is in a village called Jayanthipuram, near Naatrampalli. For god’s sake, somebody please come and rescue me.”

    Going on to list her phone number, Sathya then says, “I have no one to help me. My son and I are experiencing hell, everyday we stay here. There are no days when we are not beaten up. No days where we are not tortured. He uses such abusive language. Behaves in a horrible way. He has never considered me to be a woman for even one day. Everyday he threatens to kill me. Somebody please help me after watching this. I want to live. I don’t want to live for myself. I want to live for my son. Somebody please help me live. Just rescue me from this place somehow.”

    The police, however, deny that Sathya had approached them and instead claim, “It seems to have been some regular fight between husband and wife. It is natural for all this to happen. The husband admitted to abusing her during the inquiry. But there were no wounds on her body when found dead. Infact he claims, he hadn’t gone home in two days.”

    Sathya’s mother who has blamed her son-in-law for the death, however, was not reachable

Homemaker murdered, gold and cash missing

Bengaluru, dhns: A 26-year-old woman was found murdered with her throat slit at her house in Kasturba Nagar in West Bengaluru on Thursday morning.

The deceased, Kavitha, was a homemaker and was married to Shivaram, who works for a plywood firm in Nayandahalli. The couple had two children, the police said.

According to the police, the incident happened between 9.15 and 9.45 am. The murder came to light when Kavitha’s father Shivaswamy and sister-in-law Mangalagowri visited Kavitha’s house around 10.30 am.

The police have collected CCTV camera footage from areas in and around and suspect that a known person could have committed the murder.

On Thursday morning, she dropped her children at the schoo and returned home. When she was opening the doors, the suspect came from behind, pushed her inside the house and locked it. The suspect then slit her throat and fled.

The injury on her neck was so deep that the killer made sure that she would never survive, an investigating officer said. The police said when Shivaswamy initially arrived at Kavitha’s house, it is presumed that the killer/s were very much present in the house with the victim. Shivaswamy knocked on the doors and since he got no response, he went to Kavitha’s sister-in-law Mangalagowri’s house nearby.

When both of them then came to Kavitha’s house, the door was open and she was found lying in a pool of blood. They informed the police.

The police are yet to conclude on how many suspects were involved in the crime.

Shivaram has lodged a complaint with the Byatarayanapura police stating gold ornaments and cash of Rs 1.4 lakh were missing from the house.

“Kumar sat on the parapet wall of the terrace when he was talking on the phone. He is suspected to have lost balance and fallen down. The friends came down and found him dead. The security guards were informed about the incident, who then reported the matter to the police. We are questioning the friends to rule out the possibility of any foul play behind the death,” said an officer. BMB

Gauri murder: SIT detains crucial suspect

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh has taken Naveen Kumar alias Hotte Manja (37) hailing from Mandya into custody for questioning on Friday evening. Manja is the first person to be taken into custody suspected to have direct links to the Gauri murder case, but police claimed that more arrests would be made in the coming days.

“Based on certain clues revealed by Naveen, the SIT has taken him under eight-day police custody for further questioning,” said MN Anucheth, Chief Investigating Officer of the SIT.

The SIT sought Naveen’s custody based on his statements after his initial arrest by the Central Crime Branch (CCB) on February 19. He was arrested with 15 .32mm revolver bullets from near the Majestic bus terminus in the city. Naveen, a resident of Birur, is being questioned for providing logistic support to the group suspected to have executed Gauri’s killing outside her residence in Raja Rajeswari Nagar on the evening of September 5 , 2017.

Naveen is also suspected to have been a member of a fringe right wing outfit in the state and his social media profiles had multiple messages supporting the ideology of such outfits. Police said he belongs to an outfit called Hindu Yuva Sene.

The SIT has claimed that the main angle being probed is whether Naveen was involved in supplying the firearm used in the Gauri Lankesh murder. It is also suspected that Naveen was instrumental in providing logistic support to four men, reportedly involved in Gauri’s murder, but SIT officials said they were still verifying these aspects. Though there were reports that Naveen was identified for harbouring four men involved in the Gauri murder, including the shooter, the SIT refused to confirm it. “So far, we have interrogated over 40 gun runners across the state. As of now, Manja is also being subjected to the same procedure,” senior officials said.

The Central Crime Branch had recorded Manja’s arrest under Sections 3 and 25 of the Arms Act for illegal possession of live ammunition.

Cops on Right track

Kumar’s links with fringe outfits, role in Lankesh murder being probed

A Hindu almanac bearing Sanathan Sanstha’s name, a copy of Jeevana Darshana — a book on the teachings of Jayanth B Athavle — the founder of Sanathan Sanstha and his photograph were among the items recovered from KT Naveen Kumar’s house, the police told the court when the Special Investigation Team sought his custody for his alleged role in Gauri Lankesh’s murder.

Kumar was picked up by the Central Crime Branch on February 19 from near Majestic bus station. The police seized two SIM cards and five .32 caliber bullets.

On Friday, the SIT sought his custody for eight days. The SIT also produced a copy of his statement and a couple of CDs to the III Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court to highlight the need to probe his involvement in Gauri’s murder.

“We have taken him into custody and are probing further,” said BK Singh, SIT chief and additional commissioner of police (west).

However, Kumar has not been formally arrested till now, which means that the police do not yet have any charge that could stick. Sources he is being questioned to confirm where he was merely a sympathiser or was acquainted with members of the group believed to be behind Gauri’s murder. “There is no other criminal case against my client except for the one registered against him in Bengaluru. Before the SIT took him into eight-day custody, he was in the custody of CCB for over 10 days. The CCB could not convince the court that they had anything on him and was given only four-day custody without extension when he was produced on February 26,” said AVM Vedhamurthy, Kumar’s lawyer.

Kumar, who hails from an agrarian family in Kesthur near Maddur, had recently relocated to Birur in Chikkamagaluru, where his wife is a government servant. His father, Tippe Gowda, was a sugar mill employee.

Naveen is the Mandya district president of Hindu Yuva Sena, a splinter right wing outfit that focuses on mobilising local youth. Police claimed the organisation is not active publicly but has a significant presence on social media; a simple internet search throws up multiple results of Hindu Yuva Sena branches all over the country.

“As of now, there are no criminal cases registered against him in Mandya” said G Radhika, SP of Mandya. Chikkamagaluru SP Annamalai also said Kumar didn’t have a criminal record in the district.

Sanathan Sanstha has been under the scanner after Narendra Dabholkar’s murder in Pune. Although its name also cropped up in Govind Pansare’s murder and then in MM Kalburgi’s slaying, police have been unable to find anything substantial against it or its members. The SIT seems to be inching closer to indicating that Gauri’s murder was the fourth one in this line of fatal shootings – since all three before her were rationalists and all of them were killed with .32 calibre firearms. However, it is yet to be conclusively proved that the same firearm was used to commit all these crimes.

The police said that 10 rounds of live ammunition were recovered from raids on Kumar’s houses in Chikkamagaluru and Maddur.

Assistant Public Prosecutor Nirmala Rani, who moved the remand petition for SIT, told Bangalore Mirror that now that the SIT had secured Kumar’s custody, it should go ahead and record his arrest — if required — before the completion of the custody period.
