On a bizarre day, a man walked into the Chikmagalur Ajjampura police station holding a machete in one hand and a bag in the other, claiming he had killed his wife.
In an alleged video filmed by an official at the police station, the man, identified as 35-year-old Satish, is witnessed narrating the chilling details of the homicide.
“This is my wife, sir. I gave her all the love I could,” Satish starts in the footage as he fishes out the head of his wife, Roopa, from a black plastic bag and holds it up in the air.
“Put it inside!” a police officer is heard screeching. Satish places his wife’s head back into the bag and begins confessing.
“She cheated on me. I saw her with that guy near the plantation. I killed her. But that guy (Roopa’s supposed paramour) ran away. I couldn’t kill him though,” claimed Satish.
He went on to contend that Roopa’s suspected lover Sunil, a daily-wage worker, has multiple criminal cases against him.
“He has three to four cases against him and still she chose him. I used to be a taxi driver. I told her that I will support us. She would go off with that guy. She would say she wanted to go to the bathroom and go to meet him,” Satish is seen speaking in the video.
“Look! This is my wife. She took a loan of Rs 3 lakh to give to her lover and not me. You have seen her, have you not? How many times have we not come to the police station to sort out our fights? You know, right?” Satish queries the cops at the station.
Police say that Roopa and Satish were married nine years ago and resumed living together since their parents had originally disapproved of their relationship.
“For the past two years, they have been having lots of marital problems. He was always suspicious of her and kept saying that she was having an affair with many other men. We don’t know if this is true yet. We are trying to find out who this Sunil is,” Ajjampura police noted.
“Last month the woman had come to me saying she had problems adjusting to her in-laws. Earlier, she had complaints of how he would not give her money for food. Generally in the Ajjampura area, whoever commits murder surrenders to the police but for someone to walk in and place a head on the sub-inspector’s table was something new for us,” he furthered.
