Crime Patrol Dial 100: Triple murder case detected in 12 hours (Episode 40 on 9th December, 2015)

Triple Murder in Kuvempu Nagar, Belagavi

Praveen Subramanya Bhat, a 23-year-old resident of Sahyadri Nagar and a student of chartered accountancy at Gogte College of Commerce in Belagavi, was arrested within 12 hours of committing a triple murder in Kuvempu Nagar on Sunday morning. The victims were Reena Rakesh Malgatti, her daughter Sahitya (5), and son Aditya (12). According to the police, Praveen had an illicit affair with Reena and murdered her to end the relationship. He killed the two children as he viewed them as potential witnesses.

Four teams were formed under the guidance of the police commissioner, S. Ravi, which started investigating the case without wasting any time on evidence collected from the house of the deceased. The forensic experts had also indicated only one foot-print other than inmates of the house. In his confession to the police, Praveen claimed that he entered into an affair with Reena over a year ago and often spent time with her whenever her husband Rakesh was out of the city on business. He remained in his house after committing the murder and reportedly kept watching the police investigations throughout the day along with several other neighbours.

Praveen's father, an ex-serviceman, was shocked and visibly pained with the happening, condemning the gruesome murder and calling for proper investigation and justice for the bereaved family. The case has been registered at APMC police station, and Praveen has been charged under sections 302 and 201 IPC. The Kendriya Vidyalaya School-2 at Camp area announced a holiday on Monday following the death of Aditya, who was studying in 5th class.

Despite Praveen's confession, the police commissioner stated that it is just one side of the story, and the other side is yet to be investigated. The accused had entered Reena's house around 11:30 PM on Saturday using a rope. After spending some time with her, he returned home. He went again at 3 AM on Sunday and killed Reena, Sahitya, and Aditya. The accused claimed that he had requested Reena to stop calling him, but she ignored it, forcing him to end the relationship by killing her and the children.
