The Bengaluru police said that a 37-year-old man killed his wife and surrendered before them as he had been dejected over people calling her a thief as well as his inability to repay a loan. He also wanted to kill himself but did not have the “courage” to do so, they said.
The woman, identified as Sarita (35), and her husband Tharanath had shifted from their native Mangaluru to the Karnataka capital as she had faced theft allegations, according to the police.
A police officer said that despite having come to Bengaluru, she continued to be called a “thief” by some people who knew the couple.

Tharanath, who ran a panipuri shop in the city, had taken a loan of Rs 11 lakh and was unable to repay it. Thus he decided to kill Sarita and himself, the police said.
In the early hours of Tuesday, after allegedly strangling Sarita with a rope, he spent a few hours with her body. He allegedly tried to kill himself but could not do it and informed the landlord about what he had done. He later surrendered to the police.
The police arrested him and during the interrogation, he said he killed Sarita while she was asleep.
