Belagavi: In some bizarre advice, Karnataka Rakshana Vedike state Secretary Mahadeva Talwar on Tuesday told women that if they are having an affair, they should not kill their husbands but get a divorce instead.
Taking part in the protest condemning the death of Ramesh Kamble in Belagavi by his wife and lover, he said that there is law that women can’t be forced for anything even by their husband.
“If you don’t want a husband, divorce him and find your path. But, killing them and making the children and parents orphans and you (wives) landing in jail, why do you choose this kind of life?
“The law permits you, divorce your husbands and you move on. But, do not kill your husbands for the sake of lovers,” he said.
Kamble, a painter was killed on March 23 by his wife Sandhya. Along with her lover, she had disposed of the body in Chorla Ghat. The police cracked the after three months and arrested both the accused.
Protesters urged that the property of the accused wife and lover should be confiscated.
As Kamble has two children and aged parents, they should be secured with the seized property, they demanded. The protesters also demanded capital punishment for the wife and lover in this murder case.
