Bengaluru: An investigation into a robbery and foiled murder attempt on a man revealed an illicit relationship of his wife with the son of the building owner he was residing in. The investigation by Hulimavu police also revealed the role of the victim’s wife and her paramour in the crimes.

On December 14, Nagraj returned to his home in BTS Layout in Arakere after finishing work. Not aware of the attack planned on him by the men his wife and her paramour had hired, he had dinner and sat watching TV.
Around 9.15 pm, four unidentified men barged into his house and started punching him in the face. They took away his gold chain and Mamta’s jewellery. Just then, a neighbour walked into the house to get some water. The attackers who saw the woman coming ran away from the house and Nagraj was saved.
