Kundapur, sep 23 2018: A person of Kundapur origin who was running a hotel at Gandhinagar has been gruesomely murdered reportedly by his wife along with a family friend. The incident took place at Sheshadripuram.
The murdered hotelier Santosh Shetty’s (56) wife Annapoorneshwari Shetty (44) and a youth identified as Prakash (24) have been arrested.
It has been gathered that the duo after using pepper spray on Santosh Shetty had hit his head with lethal weapons. A seriously injured Shetty was rushed to the Apolo hospital by the accused Prakash itself stating he had suffered a fall. However, Shetty had died in the hospital.
Santosh Shetty and his wife Annapoorneshwari were running the Mahalakshmi Self Service Hotel at Gandhinagar since some years. As Santosh’s father and Prakash’s father knew each other, the latter who had come to Bengaluru in search of a job was reportedly close with Annapoorneshwari.
The duo had hatched the plot to eliminate Santosh Shetty. Though Annapoorneshwari had tried to mislead the cops stating she attacked her husband in self-defence when he tried to hit her in a drunken state, the cops who grew suspicious, on further enquiry learnt that Prakash and Annapoorneshwari had together eliminated Shetty.
