Man kills would-be groom of woman colleague; arrested

Bengaluru: Upset on learning that a woman colleague he was in love with would be marrying another man, a marketing manager at a city-based realty firm allegedly electrocuted him.

Police said Shiva Basavegowda (29), who was arrested on Wednesday, hatched the plot to kill the man, a deputy manager in a private bank, after learning that his colleague would be marrying him.

He befriended the man about six months back and on December 3 took him to a hamlet near Kaggalipura, about 30 km from here and electrocuted him, using an electrical line he had earlier drawn from a small transformer.

Police said their investigation revealed his involvement, following which he was arrested.

A case of murder, criminal conspiracy and destroying evidence was registered against him, they said.
