An accident between a car and a motor bike had happened on June 1 in the outskirts of Umrani village, Chikkodi taluk in which the motor bike rider identified as former serviceman, Prakash Shankar Eati, had died. The police who investigated the incident got to the root and unravelled the murder plan.

Wife of Prakash, Sridevi (29), her paramour, Santosh Kamathe (30), car owner, Bharamu Harijana (29) and Mahesh Harijana (30) stand arrested in connection with this case.

Bharamu, owner of the car involved in the accident, had an outstanding liability of Rs 20,000 to Santosh. As he could not repay the loan, Bharamu had agreed to commit this murder, the police said. Sridevi had extended support for this plan of projecting the murder as a road accident, they added.
