Mangalore, Sep 11: A woman caught her husband with his girlfriend in Balmatta and assaulted the girl.
The woman’s husband, a businessman and father of two, had arrived at Mangalore to meet his girlfriend who teaches at a Mangalore-based college. Reportedly, she is related to him and has even stayed in his house a few years back. Ever since, his wife has been doubting the two and late-night phone calls from the girl added fuel to the fire.
Yesterday, the wife and the kids followed Daddy to Mangalore. The wife saw the erring couple together in Balmatta and harassed her on the street, even tearing her clothes in the process. People gathered on the spot and someone called the police.
The Kadri police took them to the police station and tried to arrive at a compromise. The businessman and the girl rubbished all allegations of an illicit relationship. The man claimed that he had helped the girl with her education and that his wife was aware of it. She was just a good friend, he claimed.
The businessman’s family later arrived at the spot and urged the police to let them go. They also begged the media to keep their names out of their news reports as it might tarnish their reputation.
The police did not register any case.
