Bangalore, Apr 10: In two separate suicide cases, two software engineers allegedly hanged themselves to death in their flats on Tuesday for different reasons.

In first incident, Manoj Kumar (36) ended his life by hanging himself in his room at a paying guest accommodation in Shantiniketan Layout, HAL police station limits, on Tuesday morning.

A resident of RT Nagar, Manoj was working with a leading IT firm in Bangalore. He was married to Pramila, also a software professional, two-and-a-half years ago. The couple have a one-year-old son, Hrithik.

Police sources said Manoj had stated in the death note purportedly written by him that Pramila was threatening to lodge a complaint of dowry harassment against him and his family members and get them all arrested. Miffed at this, Manoj had left home two months ago and was living alone at Tirupati PG Accommodation in Shantiniketan Layout.

Jitendra Kumar, the elder brother of the deceased said Pramila and her mother Devi were “too demanding and were ridiculing him for not earning much.”

“Pramila and Devi had come to our house in Koramangala on Monday night and created a huge ruckus threatening us that they would file a dowry harassment case against us. When I tried calling my brother, his phone was switched off. However, on Tuesday morning, I got a call from the police saying my brother was found hanging from a ceiling fan in his room at the PG,” said Jitendra Kumar.

Police said people at the PG accommodation had broken open Mnoj room when he did not answer any calls on Tuesday morning, only to find him hanging dead.

In the death note recovered from his room, police said Manoj had blamed his wife and mother-in-law for his death. HAL police have registered a case against Pramila and Devi for abetting suicide.

In an unrelated incident, a 33-year-old software engineer allegedly hanged himself at his flat in Ramamurthynagar on Tuesday night, following a heated argument with his wife.

Gopal Kumar, a senior testing engineer at a private company and a native of Tamil Nadu, was married to Geetha, and the couple have a two-year-old daughter.

According to police, Gopal had earlier married Shanthi and had a seven-year-old son from her. The couple later parted ways owing to family pressure.

Police said he could not come out of the emotional trauma his break-up with Shanthi had caused him.

On Monday night, Gopal and Geetha fought over some issue and an upset Geetha went to bed.

When Gopal did not enter the bedroom, Geetha grew suspicious and went out to check and found him hanging dead from a ceiling fan in another room.

Neighbours who rushed to the flat hearing Geetha's cry, alerted the police.

Bengaluru, Sep 25: Karnataka Chief Minister, B. S. Yediurappa's daughter, Aruna Udayakumar has been appointed as Women wing president of the Akhil Bharata Veerashaiva Mahasabha (ABVM) on Thursday.

The ABVM is the most prestigious body of the Lingayat community, to which Yeddiyurappa belongs to. The Lingayat community holds sway in more than 150 Assembly seats across the state.

Although, the Community presence in North-Karnataka region is highly concentrated, but in Southern Karnataka region too they have sizable vote share where Vokkaliga community is very dominant.

This religious body is an easy way for any leader to come to public life. This is seen as a first step towards bringing Aruna into public life.

At present the ABVM is in control of Congress leaders, with sugar baron and prominent businessman Shamanooru Shivashankarappa heading it, while its general secretary is KPCC working president, Eshwar Khandre.

Bengaluru, Sept 22: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has taken over the investigations into the communal riots that rocked Bengaluru in August and have registered two cases.

An NIA statement said it took over the investigation on Monday following an order from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) asking the agency to probe two FIRs of arson and violence filed in connection with the incidents in Devarajeevana Halli and Kadugondana Halli police stations under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

The first case is registered on the basis of the FIR 195/2020 dated August 12 at Devarajeevana Halli police station while the second case is based on the FIR 229/2020 filed on August 12 at Kadugondana Halli police station.

SDPI Karnataka Secretary Muzamil Pasha had earlier called a meeting and directed the members of SDPI and Popular Front to "instigate the mob and incite violence", the agency claimed.

"The mob went on rampage in Devarajeevana Halli, Kadugondana Halli and Pulakeshi Nagar area under Bengaluru City. They attacked Devarajeevana Halli and Kadugondana Halli police stations and vandalized the property of police stations. including government and private vehicles parked in the police stations," it said.

The mob also attacked the house of the MLA before attacking the police stations. The NIA team, headed by an IG-rank officer, is camping at Bengaluru in connection with the investigation of these cases, the statement added.

The Centre had earlier informed the Karnataka High Court that it would take over the case.
