Belagavi: In a bizarre incident, a middle-aged man chopped off the nose of an Anganwadi worker in a fit of rage after her children plucked flowers from his garden. The incident occurred on Tuesday at Basurte village in Belagavi district.
The accused, Kalyani More, picked up a fight with the worker Sugandha More (50) and chopped off her nose in a fit of rage after her children plucked flowers from his garden.
A profusely bleeding Sugandha was admitted to a hospital where her condition is said to be critical. Police have launched a manhunt for the accused who is on the run.
The incident comes days after a 23-year-old man was arrested for allegedly killing his girlfriend by slitting her throat with a knife following a quarrel. Tejas was in a relationship with the woman for over six months. She was a final-year computer science engineering student. The accused also graduated from the same college and was her senior.
Both engaged in frequent fights and arguments. Recently, he learned about her previous relationship, leading to a quarrel. He accused her of hiding this from him which led to arguments. On the pretext of discussing their issues, he called her to the main town from where he took her about 13 km away from the city towards Kunti Betta Hills on his motorcycle. After arriving there, the two again got into a quarrel following which he took out a knife and slit her throat, the officer said.
