Bengaluru-Karnataka (INDIA): A 31-year-old man hid under a cot for more than six hours before killing his wife's lover in Bengaluru's Byadarahalli. The accused, identified as Bharath Kumar, a carpenter, has been arrested.
Bharath had married Vinutha eight years ago and had two children. The victim, Shivaraj, was a friend of Bharath's wife and had come to visit her in search of a job three years ago.
Recently, Shivaraj professed his love for Vinutha. She turned him down but later agreed. However, Bharath Kumar soon got a wind of his wife's extra-marital affair with Shivaraj and objected to it. He then decided to eliminate Shivaraj for ruining his family life.
On Wednesday, Bharath entered Vinutha's house at 9 pm and hid under the cot. It was around 10.30 pm Shivaraj came to her place and they went to sleep after dinner. When Vinutha went to the washroom at 3 pm, Bharath locked her from outside and stabbed Shivaraj to death.
Police said Bharath would be produced before the court on Friday and sent to judicial custody. "The accused has confessed to the murder and his medical test is being done," police officer said.
