The police later arrested the woman’s former driver for his involvement in the incident. The body has been sent for post-mortem. According to Bengaluru police sources, Dhrith Kiran was working as a driver for government official Prothma on contract basis for the last five years. Kiran was sacked last Saturday as his contract expired.
And the accused could not accept it. The investigators claimed that Kiran told the interrogation that he killed him out of anger at being fired. Police said the woman officer’s husband and son were not at home at the time of the murder. It is reported that they were at a place in Shivamoga district, about 300 km from Bengaluru.
On the morning of November 5, Prothma was called by his brother. He called several times. But due to the lack of response, there is doubt. After that he called the Bengaluru police and told the whole incident. At around 8:30 in the morning, the police recovered the body of the female government officer with her throat cut from the house.
The police also said that the accused gave Kiran Champat soon after the murder. He fled to Chamarajnagar, about 200 km from Bengaluru. He was arrested from there. After the preliminary investigation, the investigators said that Prathma was in the office till 6 pm on November 4. Then Kiran’s replacement driver brought him home around 8 pm.
