Cop wanted in murder and dowry case in Bangalore

A 25-year-old constable of the Jayanagar police station is absconding after his wife was found hanging in his sister’s house in Kaggalipur on Saturday morning in the limits of Talaghattapur police station.

Constable Kantharaju, a resident of Shakambari Nagar, married Pushpa Kumari three years ago. The couple have a two-year-old son, Chirag, who also is missing along with the father. Interestingly, Kantharaju’s three brothers also are police constables.

The police have filed a dowry harassment and murder case based on the complaint lodged by Pushpa’s father Krishnappa.

Police said Pushpa’s body was found hanging in Kantharaju’s sister Yashoda Narayan’s house in Kaggalipur. They suspect that she might have taken the extreme step on Friday night.

Krishnapp alleged that she was murdered over dowry issues. Pushpa had allegedly told her parents that her husband was in an extra-marital relationship and wouldn’t return home sometimes.

Apparently, Pushpa also went to the Kantharaju’s paramour’s house recently to warn her, but was attacked by her relatives. Pushpa had then filed a complaint with KS Layout police.
