Bantwal, Jun 29: Police are now investigating the reason for the auto driver Sridhar’s stabbing act of married woman Shakuntala (35) in broad daylight on Monday June 27.

The deceased woman, Shakuntala was a resident of Ananthadi Devinagara and wife of Sanjeeva, who was running a canteen at Puttur.

Police are now investigating the relationship between Shakuntala and Sridhar. It is said that Sridhar, who was arrested on Monday, had gone to Shakuntala's house a year ago for some reason and was engaged in an ugly verbal duel with her. Police are also trying to find out the reason for the rise in Sridhar’s temper who had gone in his auto to her canteen and given her some cold stares besides giving vent to his feelings.

It may be recalled that Sridhar had fished out a knife at Shakuntala at the Neralakatte junction of Netlamudnooru village on Monday when she was on her way towards Puttur on her two-wheeler.

    It is alarming that animosity is on the increase nowadays... We are witnessing unreasonable unilateral actions by humans against fellow humans... Fear of death has almost disappeared and respect for human values is sidelined in most cases... Bad tongue often is sharper than swords and knives... Thou we do not know the full story it may be that guy might have lent money to the lady on blade interest or some similar issue... Gradually it will come to public knowledge... But children have lost mother and guy's family is also shattered by his short sightedness...
