Architect kills doctor for uploading private photos online.

The Bengaluru police on Monday said that they have taken a 27-year-old architect and two of her male friends into their custody for murdering her live-in partner for allegedly sharing her private pictures on social media.

The police identified the accused as Prathibha, a resident of New Mico Layout, and her friends Gautham, aged 27, and Sushil, aged 25. Another accused in the case, identified as Surya, is currently at large.

According to the police, the deceased, identified as Dr N Vikas, was working as a doctor at a private hospital in the city after finishing his MBBS in Ukraine. He previously worked in Chennai and shifted to Bengaluru to pursue a certified course.

In 2021, Vikas and Prathibha, who were in a relationship, rented a house near Udupi Garden and started living there together. Both their families knew they were in a live-in relationship and that they had decided to get married, the police said.

As maintained by the cops, Prathibha recently found photographs of herself and her mother on social media, and learned that it was Vikas who had shared it using a sham ID.

On September 10, the couple had an altercation over the matter, following which Prathibha told her friends about the incident, the police said.

On the same day, they all came to the couple’s residence and heated arguments broke out. “The accused hit Vikas using a floor mop stick and bottles. As Vikas fell unconscious, he was shifted to Jayashree hospital and the doctors suggested shifting him to St John’s Medical College and Hospital for further treatment where he succumbed to death,” a Begur police official said.

According to the police, Prathibha passed on incorrect information to the hospital that Vikas got hurt in a fight with her friends over a minor issue. Prathibha then called Vikas’s elder brother Vijay and told him the same story that she had told the hospital.

Vikas succumbed to injuries while undergoing treatment on September 14. the victim’s elder brother Vijay later registered a complaint with the Begur police.

In the time of investigation, Prathibha made an attempt to avoid arrest saying that her friends killed Vikas and that she had no role in it. However, the police discovered that she was the main conspirator behind the killing and arrested her too.
