Bangalore: A 32-year-old employee of the BPO firm of a software concern was today remanded to judicial custody for allegedly abetting the suicide of his fiancee, a software firm employee.
Allan Sandeep, who was arrested yesterday, had allegedly been demanding dowry from his fiance Savitha Venkatappa (25), who allegedly committed suicide on Jan 19, police said.
Savitha allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself in her house in Ganganagar last week and her parents had filed a criminal case against Sandeep.
Though Savitha left no suicide note, her family alleged she was dejected after her engagement with Sandeep did not materialise in marriage.
Police say they would probe the digital evidence in their possession, such as mobile phone call details, SMS details, emails and chatting information, and also financial
transactions between Savitha and Sandeep.
After their engagement, Sandeep had allegedly been demanding dowry from Savitha besides avoiding her for the past couple of months. He also allegedly demanded a car. Following his demands, a depressed Savitha allegedly took her own life, police said.
