Post Newly-wed techie kills wife, attempts suicide

A 31-year-old man employed with a leading IT firm in Bangalore murdered his wife whom he married just six days ago and attempted suicide, police said on Saturday.

Bijoy Samuel of Bhopal, working in the HR department of the firm, was arrested and produced before a city court which remanded him in 14-day judicial custody last night, they said.

Samuel strangulated his wife Rajani Rajan (25), a Keralite he had married on April 24, using a cloth and then tried to commit suicide by slashing his wrist, Deputy Commissioner of Police H S Revanna said.

The incident came to light when Samuel's elder brother Ajay came to the couple's house in Ganganagar on Friday to invite them for a function at his residence.

Samuel told the police that he killed his wife because of her "utter dislike" for him and continuous criticism about his behaviour.

"However, we are not convinced about it," Revanna said, adding police were questioning the neighbours and also Samuel's friends.

Police said they also wanted to question Rajani's parents who have left for Kerala with the body. They were unwilling to speak to the police at present.
