A 32-year-old man, who is suspected to have murdered his wife's alleged paramour with the connivance of his four friends, has landed in police custody with the other accomplices. Police said Somashekhar, the prime suspect, had attacked the victim, Srinivas, on April 9 after his wife invited him over as per his instruction. Somashekhar had caught his wife, Shwetha, "red-handed", speaking to Srinivas over phone on April 6. When a furious Somashekhar demanded explanation, Shwetha said she was just friends with Srinivas and would often talk to him over phone, police said, and added Srinivas was a "womaniser" and had many affairs.

Empowering citizens and residents' welfare associations (RWAs) through Swaraj Bill, better transport system, reverse osmosis facility in areas having high fluoride in water, commuter rail connecting Bangalore and Chikkaballapur with Kempegowda International Airport and women's safety are some of the promises the fledgling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has made for the voters of Bangalore. At a 'Meet the Press' programme organised by the Bangalore Press Club here on Tuesday, the four candidates of the AAP contesting from Bangalore South, North, Rural and Chikkaballapur Lok Sabha seats, said they and their party stood for clean and honest governance. Prof Babu Mathew, who is contesting from Bangalore North, said, "It is painful to see the way buses ply bothering little about the plight of women and differently-abled people. If we are voted to power, we will make the transport system disabled and women-friendly." Mathew further said empowering RWAs and smashing the mafia through Jan Lokpal is also on AAP's agenda. ...
