Old aged couple killed over revenge
Rakesh, says the police, is the brother in law of Naveen. Naveen's wife Pavithra D, from Avalahalli did not get along and had recently returned to her parents' house. Rakesh who was infuriated on this had threatened to take revenge against Naveen on this.
On Sunday night, the 25-year-old Rakesh, reportedly barged in to Naveen's home, brutally stabbing to death the old aged couple, Govindappa, 65, and his wife Shanthamma, 55 who were alone at home then. Naveen had stepped out for an errand when the accused broke in to the house for the attack.
The couple were found dead in the pool of blood when Naveen returned back home.
The Konankunte police had registered the case on the double murder and have been thoroughly reviewing the CCTV footage and all the possible eyewitnesses.
