The deceased has been identified as Roshini Khanam (22), a resident of Neelasandra in Bengaluru and wife of Azeez Saddam (26), a resident of Gafar Khan Mohalla.
Police sources have said that Azeez killed his wife as he doubted her faithfulness toward him.
It is learnt that, on the day of the murder, Azeez invited his wife to a mango field at Murugamalla in the Chintamani taluk, and upon her arrival, offered her juice laced with sedatives. As soon as she lost consciousness, he beheaded her with the help of a sharp knife, left the rest of her body in the field, placed her head in a travel bag and walked into the Srinivaspur Police Station. At the police station, he took her head out of the bag, kissed it repeatedly and placed it on the table and confessed to the crime.
A preliminary investigation into the incident revealed that Azeez is already married and that Roshini is his second wife, the police said.
A similar incident took place on September 10, where a man walked into the Ajjampura police station in the Chikkamagaluru district with his wife’s head of wife in a bag, handed it to the Police and confessed to murdering his wife for being unfaithful.
