Mangaluru, Jan 13, 2015: A young married woman of Uttar Pradesh origin has been found hacked to death in the bathroom of her house at Meenakaliya in Panambur. The murder which might have possibly taken place on January 12, Monday night came to light on Tuesday morning.
The woman identified as Kalpana (25) was a labourer and was living with her husband Rajesh, also a labourer at the railway yard.
The suspicion is that the assailants murdered her with a sickle and a heavy stone when she was alone after her husband had left for work on night shift. When Rajesh returned home on Tuesday morning, he found his wife lying in a pool of blood.
The body has been taken to the hospital for a post-mortem and the Panambur police have taken Rajesh to custody for enquiry.
Investigations are underway.
