Infosys manager arrested for wife’s murder

The city police on Friday arrested Satish Kumar Gupta in connection with the murder of his 29-year-old wife Priyanka, a math teacher at Kanakapura’s Delhi Public School.
Priyanka was found murdered on August 10 at their Hulimavu residence.
Gupta, 32, an HR manager with Infosys, was picked up for interrogation on Thursday after Priyanka’s cremation.
He was produced before the magistrate, who remanded him in police custody for eight days, said BNS Reddy, dcp, southeast.
Unconfirmed reports said that Gupta had confessed to murdering his wife.
The police have officially not denied Gupta’s confession, but neither have they confirmed it. Sources in the police said he had confessed to the crime. Initial police reports said two strangers, who posed as newspaper vendors, had killed Priyanka by tying her up to a chair and then strangling her before slitting her throat with a kitchen knife. Surprisingly, the bloodied weapon was found at the scene of crime by the police.
The fact that it took Gupta an hour to return home despite being informed by his wife about the newspaper vendors created suspicion.
The police were puzzled at his version of driving to his office to get the keys to his house door when no one responded to the doorbell. The police wondered why he did not instead peep through the window to find out why Priyanka had not opened the door.
The police said contradictions in Gupta’s statements made them detain him for questioning.
His father, Anand Kumar Gupta, was also interrogated. Investigators suspected that someone known to Priyanka had murdered her because her jewellery was not touched, neither was the money kept in her bedroom’s almirah.
