On Thursday Indu visited the station again asking them to warn her husband to come to his senses. So the police called him again and warned him of legal action if he did not appear at the station, sources added.

According to sources, at around 3.30 pm, Michael arrived near the police station spotted his wife, and followed her. He confronted her at the 6th block road in Koramangala for lodging a police complaint against him. Things took a drastic turn when Michael in a fit of rage stabbed Indu over 10 times with a knife in public view.
