Davanagere man kills pregnant wife, buries her body in jungle


Davanagere (Karnataka), Nov 24 (IANS): A man in Karnataka's Davanagere district was arrested on Thursday for allegedly killing his 6-month pregnant wife and burying her body in the jungle - in a pit he had prepared much earlier, police said.

The accused is identified as Mohan Kumar, 25, a resident of Gangondanahalli near Channagiri town near Davanagere. Police have launched a hunt for parents of Mohan, who are on the run.

The deceased woman was identified as Chandrakala aka Rashmi, 21.

According to police, the marriage of Chandrakala and Mohan Kumar was held last year. However, a dispute surfaced between the couple in the initial days. Mohan Kumar suspected Chandrakala's character and pressured her to bring dowry. He also hated her speaking to anyone.

Whenever she spoke to others, the accused questioned her and accused her of having affairs. Police said that not being able to take the torture, Chandrakala was forced to make calls to her parents stealthily.

Though she came back to her parents' house, they had sent her back. One and half months ago, Mohan Kumar had strangulated his wife during a quarrel. Later, he took the body to Hunaghatta forest area near Ajjampura in Chikkamagalur district and buried it.

He then informed her parents that Chandrakala had gone missing and lodged a missing complaint with police on October 10, saying that she had eloped with someone.

Chandrakala's parents had complained to the police and suspected that she could have been harmed by their son-in-law. The police investigations revealed that on the day of missing, the accused had taken his car and went outside at 2 a.m.

When the police took him into custody and grilled him, he confessed to the crime. The dead body was exhumed by authorities and sent for a post-mortem examination.

The probe revealed that the accused had planned to kill his wife one month ago. He also thought about disposal of the body and destruction of all evidence, and even prepared the pit in the forest much earlier, police said.

    Even after knowing their son in law is torturing their daughter , still her parents sent her back to live with him. Our mind set is such that we think more about others, woh kya sochenge !!??. Dear parents please don't force your daughters to live with the person if they dislike, just welcome them back. It's time we must learn few things from western culture. May her soul rest in peace

    Not suprised. If we go through by social media dozens of such brutalities can be witnessed in this community on daily basis. Most of them either abandon or they torture to death ... Godi media deliberately refrains from it and highlight selective cases related to particular minority community with an agends...

    Exactly.... Since Godi media is playing with minorities under the guidance of their sanghi Masters, we should utilise the technology such as Data Analytics using Big Data and ML, and start highlighting the cases of others whom this media persons belongs to and spread in social media so that let all know the truth and reality.

    Send him to jail immediately. Parents too are wrong to make her go back to the husband. Every lady must now become independent, as these days, parents also are only namesake. For society, they have children and then, harass the girls by getting them married off ,just to be rid of responsibility. This poor lady has suffered because of such selfish people. May her soul and that of her unborn rest in peace. Our society needs to change, otherwise such innocents will keep paying the price.

    Suspicion is a poison in marriages. It should be completely removed before it sets in by fully clarifying the matter without evasion and without taking it lightly till both the partners are satisfied. Otherwise it will crop up now and then in every conversation and could take very nasty turn going out of control.
