Belthangady, Dec 4, 2015 :  A  man who was reportedly in love with an Anganavadi teacher, but was agitated ever since the latter’s family turned down the proposal,  barged into the Anganavadi centre and chopped off the hand of the teacher  before  ending his life by shooting himself with a rifle on  December 3, Thursday.

The deceased is Umesh Gowda (41), while  the Angavanadi teacher Honnamma (37) who is seriously injured has been hospitalised.

Jilted lover chops off Anganavadi teacher’s hand; ends lifeSources said the family of Honnamma which had initially agreed  to give her in marriage to Umesh, had later backtracked  when  it realised that he was an alcoholic.

This had frustrated  Umesh who, on two earlier occasions had reportedly attacked Honnamma at the Anganavadi centre. However, on Thursday he had arrived with a sickle and a rifle and  used the sickle to chop off  Honnamma’s hand and the rifle to kill himself a little distance away from the Anganavadi.

It has been gathered that Honnamma could save herself   as she had  rushed inside the Anganavadi and locked the door.

Belthangady police are investigating the case.
