A 27- year-old beautician in Bangalore has been arrested by the city police for the murder of her lover and live-in partner at their residence a week ago.

The beautician who reported the crime to the police had earlier claimed that her partner had stabbed himself but investigations have revealed that the 27-year-old carried out the stabbing after a domestic dispute, police said. The crime took place on October 18.

According to the police the beautician Soubhagya alias Neetu shared an apartment at Prem Nagar in West Bangalore with her lover Charan Kumar, a government employee.

On October 18 the couple allegedly fought with each other over some financial issues and Neetu allegedly stabbed Kumar. She however called the police and claimed that her lover had stabbed himself with a knife in a suicidal act. During the investigations the police grew suspicious of Neetu’s version of the circumstances behind the death of Charan Kumar.

Police said Kumar who was working as a village accountant in Magadi met Neetu around eight months ago and the couple fell in love with each other and began staying together. They recently developed difference over some financial issues and this led to a fight on October 18 where Neetu allegedly stabbed Kumar in his chest with a knife, police said. Police have arrested the 27-year-old beautician and remanded her to judicial custody.
