Bengaluru: A 40-year-old woman and her two male friends were arrested by the city police for murdering her alcoholic husband, and dumping the body on the railway tracks to make it look like an accidental death.

The accused have been identified as Yashodha (40), a resident of Shantinagar and her friends Muniraju (33) an autorickshaw driver, a resident of Vijinapura, and Prabhu Partiban (27), a painter by profession and resident of Kasturinagar. The deceased was identified as Lokanantha (48).

The incident came to light when the loco pilot of Mysuru- Kachiguda Express noticed the body on the railway track near Kasturinagar, and stopped the train before alerting the control room.

The police soon rushed to the spot and pulled the body out of the track to allow the train to pass.

During the investigation, detained Yashodha for questioning who told them that Lokanatha, a chronic alcoholic and unemployed, used to harass her every day demanding money. Unable to bear his harassment, Yashodha sought the help of his friends to eliminate him so that she could live peacefully.

Muniraju agreed to help her and called Lokanatha offering liquor. The duo took him near the railway track and after a couple of drinks, strangled him with a rope and dumped the body on the track before returning home .

The trio have been booked for murder and attempt to destroy evidence, and remanded in judicial custody.
