Bengaluru: Acquitted in triple murder case, financier kills wife | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: A 40-year-old financier has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his wife to death in his house in Health Layout in Annapoorneshwarinagar on Wednesday evening. The trigger for the murder: She danced with her relatives during a family outing.
Police have recovered a screwdriver, knife, two mobiles and one bike from the accused, BR Kantharaju. Roopa HG, 32, was found dead with multiple stab injuries on her neck inside the house. The couple has a seven-year-old boy.
Roopa’s younger sister Latha HG had filed a complaint with Annapoorneshwarinagar police, accusing Kantharaju of murdering Roopa after suspecting her fidelity. Kantharaju had fled on his twowheeler soon after the incident. DCP (west) Sanjeev Patil said a special team led by inspector BN Lohit traced the accused. Kantharaju changed his hideout frequently and his mobiles were switched off.
“Kantharaju was facing shortage of cash and had contacted a couple of his friends using his mobile. After each conversation, he would turn off the phone. On Friday, we learnt he was visiting a trader in Mahalakshmi Layout to take a loan. We waited near the trader’s house and arrested Kantharaju when he arrived there at night,” police said.
Kantharaju told cops that he suspected Roopa of having an affair with two close family members. He grew more suspicious when he saw Roopa dancing with the duo during a family outing last week.
“On September 19, 14 family members of Kantharaju and Roopa went on a three-day trip to Chikkamagalauru and surrounding areas. On Sunday, they stayed at a resort and everyone danced around the campfire. Kanathraju could not come to terms with the fact that his wife was dancing with two male members from the family,” sources said.
After returning to Bengaluru on September 21, Kantharaju fought with Roopa on the issue. However, she is said to have chided him for suspecting her. She had maintained that theirs was a close-knit family and everyone was friendly. “But the fight resumed again on September 22. An enraged Kantharaju first stabbed Roopa’s neck with a screwdriver and then with a knife before fleeing. Kantharaju’s father Ramakrishna called Latha and others saying Roopa was found dead in the bedroom,” police said.
