Man murders wife, hangs body from ceiling fan to cover it up as suicide – Husband nabbed

Bengaluru: Husband tried to cover up the wife’s murder as suicide by hanging the body from a ceiling fan. Police have arrested a man for reportedly strangulating his wife to death on Wednesday morning at their house in HRBR Layout.

The deceased was identified as 19-year-old Kenchamma. Siddappa Basavaraj Bennur six months back married Kenchamma and the couple hailed from Vijayapura district.

The newly-married couple had rented a house in HRBR Layout and stayed there for the past six months. Siddappa used to supply domestic gas cylinders and Kenchamma used to work as domestic help at a couple of neighbouring houses.

At around 2 am on Wednesday, the couple fought and Sidappa reportedly strangulated Kenchamma to death. He then hanged her body from a ceiling fan and informed her relatives claiming that she died by suicide.

The police got suspicious and detained Siddappa who reportedly accepted his crime. The police are yet to ascertain the reason for the murder and suspect family issues might be the cause of the crime.
