A newly married woman in Bangalore was found murdered at her home around 5 pm on Monday with her throat slit with a glass piece.
Valarmazi's husband Balasubramanyam, a mechanical engineer, reached home around 9 pm and informed the police. The police reached by 10 pm and sent the body to Victoria Hospital for post-mortem around 12.30 am.
The couple had recently moved to the city in September and rented a house in SMS Residency in BTM Layout.
Primary investigation by the police revealed that the accused was known to Valarmazi as the house was not broken into. Valarmazi even offered buttermilk to the guest as the police found buttermilk on the floor.
The accused allegedly took her to the bedroom and slit her throat as glass pieces were strewn on the floor of the hall. As Valarmazi's body was found in a semi-nude condition, the police are not ruling out rape.
Valarmazi allegedly died because of heavy blood loss. Surprisingly, SMS Residency has five floors but none of the neighbours heard any sound.
Police personnel are also not denying that the accused could be Valarmazi's boyfriend as the accused took two gifts -- a Ganesha idol and another a heart-shaped show piece -- for her.
D Rachappa, ACP, Mico Layout said, "The accused got gifts shows that he is a known person. Valarmazi also offered him buttermilk. The glass is broken in the hall. The accused took her to the bedroom and slit her throat. The body was found in a semi-nude condition so we are not ruling out rape. But only after the investigation can we conclude who the accused is."
Mico Layout Police Inspector C N Janardhan said, "A complaint has been registered at Mico Layout police station and we will investigate the case."
