Woman sets husband ablaze in Karnataka for questioning her affair

In a bid to douse the fire, the man ran out of the house and jumped into a drain. As he tried to climb out, the woman’s lover bludgeoned him.

Jayanagara police arrested the accused Annapoorna, who works as a labourer at an onion mandi and Ramakrishna, a painter and moneylender.

A 36-year-old woman allegedly set her husband ablaze and murdered him with the help of her lover in Karnataka’s Tumakuru district.

Jayanagara police arrested the accused Annapoorna (36) who works as a labourer at an onion mandi and Ramakrishna (35), a painter and moneylender. The victim has been identified as Narayanappa (52), a resident of Baddihalli in Tumakuru district. He worked as an electrician in a private company in Nelamangala.

Narayanappa was aware of his wife’s relationship with Ramakrishna and the couple often fought over the same. On Sunday afternoon, they had a heated argument after Narayanappa found Ramakrishna at his residence.

In a fit of rage, Annapoorna threw petrol on her husband and set him ablaze. In a bid to save himself, the man ran out of the house and jumped into a drain to douse the fire. As he tried to climb out, Ramakrishna bludgeoned Narayanappa.
