Dharwad (Karna): Irked over his wife not
staying with him, a newly married CRPF constable allegedly
shot dead three relatives, including two children, at Bettadur
village in Dharwad district today, police said.

Shankarappa Thippanna Koravar (28) had some marital
discord with his wife following which she had left him and was
staying with her parents, they said.

Enraged by his wife`s desertion, Koravar, who had come
home on leave, held his wife`s uncle Yellappa Bhajantri (36)
responsible for the situation.

He went to Bhajantri`s residence and started firing with
a revolver, killing Bhajantri and his two children, a boy aged
six and girl (5) on the spot, they said, adding another son,
aged seven, who was injured, has been admitted to hospital and
is "recovering".

Koravar is absconding.
