The deceased woman Jyothi (33) hailed from Punjalakatte. She was given in marriage to Dinesh Shetty, a farmer 11 years ago. The couple has two daughters aged 9 and 4.

Jyothi’s children were sent to their grandmother’s place ten days ago itself. On Tuesday  night only Jyothi, her husband and mother-in-law were at home.

Though initially it was thought to be suicide, locals raised suspicion that the body would not have been found floating if it was a suicide.

Both the accused Dinesh and Vanaja have been produced before the court and remanded to 14 days of judicial custody.
