A 24-year-old housewife was allegedly murdered by her husband at their residence in Pai Layout on Tuesday night. The incident came to light Wednesday morning.
Geethamma alias Lakshmi, a native of Chitradurga, is believed to have been strangulated with her sari by her husband Gopi, a tractor driver. The police said he is now absconding with their one-year-old daughter.
Venkatesh, Lakshmi’s brother and neighbour, said when he visited the couple on Tuesday night, they were reportedly fighting as Gopi did not like the food she had cooked. On Wednesday, when he went to her house again, he found her dead.
