Wife held for bid on hubby
Woman hatches plan with paramour
FACING DOMESTIC violence from her husband, Sunitha hatched a plan, along with her lover, to kill her husband.
AFTER THE plan foiled, Sunitha filed a complaint against her husband for harassment.
A 31-year-old housemaid, her lover, and her lover’s driver were arrested on Thursday by the Narayanguda police for kidnapping and attempting to murder her husband.
Sunitha, the accused, was unhappy with her marriage. “She and her husband, Devakatey Gyaneshwar, would have frequent quarrels and fights over petty issues. She started having an affair with 54-year-old B. Srinivas Murthy, a resident of Yapral, who was one of her employers,” said B. Ravinder, inspector of Narayanguda.
Frustrated by the domestic violence she was constantly facing at home, Sunitha hatched a plan, along with Srinivas, to kill her husband. Late on Saturday night, Sunitha gave Gyaneshwar water laced with sleeping pills. She waited for him to become unconscious and then alerted Srinivas, who sent his driver, U. Venkatesh, to pick him up.
Gyaneshwar was tied up and taken to ECIL crossroads in an auto rickshaw. There he was moved to Srinivas’s car and taken to an isolated spot at Ankireddy Pally in Keesara.
However, Gyaneshwar soon regained consciousness and began calling for help. He managed to untie his hands, bit Srinivas when he attempted to scare him with a can of deodorant, and escaped.
Afraid of the consequences of her husband’s escape, Sunitha filed a complaint with the Narayanguda police, claiming that her husband had been hurting her while inebriated.
After a thorough investigation, the police managed to place the entire picture together and arrested Sunitha, Srinivas and Venkatesh. The three were booked under relevant sections of the IPC for kidnapping and attempt to murder.
