Leave your parents else i file dowry harassment case - Sathish claims harassment as motive for murdering wife
BANGALORE: At the last point of investigation, Sathish Kumar Gupta claimed that harassment drove him to murder his wife Priyanka Gupta.
"First, we took him into confidence, giving him hope that we would help him out. Till then, he tried denying the charges against him. Once he gained confidence, he opened up. He seems to have his own story to tell, which resulted in him ruining his own life,'' said investigation officer inspector Balarame Gowda.
Sathish told police that his wife forbade him from having any contact with his parents. He said his parents struggled hard to educate him.
Unable to bear the harassment, Sathish proposed to divorce her. But Priyanka refused, saying she would file a dowry harassment case. The last straw was when Priyanka created a scene at a family function, Satish claimed.
"But he was not a professional killer and made his plans after seeing one or two detective serials and reading stories. He went on creating evidences to prove that he was not at the spot, which started giving rise to a lot of questions. We could make out that some one had deliberately tried creating a scene, after committing murder,'' Balarame Gowda added.
