Puttur, May 29, 2016: A quarrel between a couple in Nekkilady culminated in a tragedy after both jumped into a well. If the husband died, the wife was lucky enough to survive.
The deceased is Prakash Naik(32), a lecturer in a women’s college at Jadekallu. His wife Ashashree (26) who is an assistant manager in a co-operative society in Puttur, managed to survive by clinging on to the pipe of the pumpset. She was rescued by neighbours.
It is learnt, the couple used to quarrel frequently over family issues and Prakash being short tempered had made matters further worse.
The couple had quarrelled on Friday night too as was evident from the broken mobile sets of both of them.
Uppinangady Police are investigating the case.
