B'lore: Infy techie turns suspect in wife's murder

By Samyuktha
Bangalore, Aug 11: A new twist has emerged in the murder of the Infosys techie's wife here, as the police is now questiong the husband and other relatives to see if any of them had any motive.

According to a report in a popular tabloid, Mid-Day, the investigating officers are suspecting Satish Gupta's involvement in his wife, Priyanka Gupta's murder on Tuesday, Aug 10 morning.

The police were led into suspecting the husband's role when they found that Satish went for his morning walk wearing leather shoes despite owning a number of pairs of sports shoes. Besides this, the accused did not seem like professional killers.

Even though robbery seemed to be the apparent motive, with Rs 2 lakh in cash and valuables missing from the house, the murder could have been the handiwork of someone who was known to the Guptas, the newspaper reported on Wednesday, Aug 11.

Bangalore South East police has formed a special team to investigate the case.

"At this moment, it's difficult to state the exact motive behind the murder. We are investigating the matter," Joint commissioner of police (crime) Alok Kumar is quoted as saying.

The 27-year-old teacher of Delhi Public School (DPS) was killed early on Tuesday, Aug 10 morning when she was alone at her home in Hulimavu on Bannerghatta road. Her husband, a software engineer working with Infosys, claims that he was out on his morning walk when the two culprits attacked.
