Bengaluru: A man is on the run after allegedly strangling his wife over a marital discord in southern Bengaluru on Sunday September 25.
Police in Begur is searching for Manu K. M. (28), who initially stated that his wife, Sangeetha died at their house in Papaiah Reddy Layout, Chowdeshwarinagar, of natural causes.
Shivaram Reddy, their landlord, saw Manu bringing Sangeetha outside around 7.30 pm, informing the people that she had a heart arrest. She was taken to a private hospital, where doctors declared her dead.
However, Manu later confessed to Reddy that he had killed Sangeetha during a fight and escaped.
According to sources, Sangeetha had expected him to return home early as it was Mahalaya Amavasya. But he didn’t return until after it was dark. They had an argument over it. Sangeetha was slapped by Manju before she was strangled and her head was banged against the wall.
