BENGALURU: A man who feigned ignorance about his wife’s death and took her to a hospital has been arrested for her murder. The Yeshwantpur police, who had initially registered a case of unnatural death have now registered a case of homicide.

Two days ago, a ‘distraught’ Sharat brought his second wife Priya to a hospital stating that she was not speaking. Upon examination, the doctors realised that Priya had died and Sharat broke down. Following this, the police had registered a case of unnatural death.

However, during investigation, the police came to know that Sharat had in fact killed his wife and then brought her to hospital to misguide the doctors and the investigators.

According to the police, Priya frequently quarrelled with Sharat over him visiting his first wife. A few days ago too, they had an argument and Sharat had assaulted her so hard that she fell to the ground and died. Sharat then tried to hide the murder, but his ploy was revealed after two days. Medical examination had revealed that Priya had suffered a broken shoulder bone due to the impact of her fall.

The Yeshwantpur have since arrested Sharat and taken up further investigation.
