New Delhi: A 26-year-old Nepali citizen was arrested for allegedly killing his live-in partner in Bengaluru.

Santhosh Dhami was arrested for killing Krishna Kumari Ammai (23) at his residence in TC Palya on Tuesday night, according to police. Ammai, also a Nepali national, had come to Bengaluru two years ago. She worked in a salon, police said.

For the past year, she was in a relationship with Dhami, who worked in a men’s parlour, according to the police.

According to the Indian Express, Bheemashankar S. Guled, the deputy commissioner of police (Bengaluru East division) said before Krishnakumari was murdered, she had called a friend around 9:45 pm and informed him about a fight she had with Dhami. “Half-an-hour later she made a video call to the friend, where he saw her boyfriend assaulting Krishnakumari,” the police said.

She asked two of her friends to arrive at their rented house. “When one of the friends reached, Krishnakumari was lying on a bed in a pool of blood. When confronted, Santosh said he had hit her since she was talking to other men despite being in a relationship with him. Later, he told the police that he was infuriated as she used to evade his questions,” he said, according to IE.
