Krishnagiri: Married woman lures ex-lover to death, held

Police were helped by a clue - the number plate of the two-wheeler having registration of Karnataka.

KRISHNAGIRI: The Krishnagiri taluk police traced the man who was brutally killed here, with the registration number of an abandoned two-wheeler. The deceased was lured into a death trap by his former lover and her new fiancée, in a strange tale of love triangle that has come to light.

On Sunday, police recovered the dead body of a man who was later identified as 30-year-old car mechanic M.Krishna of Ganglipura village, near Kanakapura of neighbouring Karnataka.

Police were helped by a clue - the number plate of the two-wheeler having registration of Karnataka. The vehicle was found abandoned at the place where his dead body was recovered from a mango farm of Devasamuthiram village in Krishnagiri taluk police limits.

Investigations revealed that Krishna often came to Krishnagiri to meet a married woman with whom he was having an extramarital affair. This led to the arrest of 32-year-old M.Monica Mamtha Devi, wife of 36-year-old Murali of Thimmaraya Gounder street in Krishnagiri.

Monica, while in police custody, admitted to killing her ex-lover Krishna. She told police that she and Krishna were lovers before her marriage with her husband Murali. Unable to forget Krishna, she was in regular contact with him. Meanwhile, she developed a new relationship with Sevathan, 40, of Vediappan Koil Street in Papparapatti of Dharmapuri, who worked at a construction site opposite her husband's house in Krishnagiri. Sevathan was upset to see Krishna coming to Monica's house and asked her to cut off the relationship with her ex-lover. Monica asked Sevathan to kill him.

As planned, Monica called Krishna to Krishnagiri and took him to a temple in Devasamuthiram village. They entered a mango farm where the killers Sevathan and his associate Sakthivel were waiting. Krishna collapsed soon after he was hit by the killer-duo with a heavy object that injured his skull. Then, they stabbed him with a knife before slitting his throat.
