Indian Sister arrested for Chopping up Brother in 2015 f

This led to a scuffle between the siblings.

The sister of a man whose remains were discovered in 2015 has been arrested for his murder, eight years later.

In 2015, residents of Jigani, Bengaluru, were shocked when they found the remains of a young man in three separate bags and dumped in three locations.

Police launched an investigation and the victim was identified as Lingaraju Siddappa Pujari.

However, the case became cold.

Eight years later, police found a breakthrough and on March 18, 2023, they arrested a woman and her live-in partner.

The woman was identified as 31-year-old Bhagyashree Siddappa Pujari, the sister of the victim.

Her partner’s name was Shivaputra.

According to reports, Bhagyashree and Shivaputra were in a secret relationship, having been friends since their college days in Vijayapura.

They moved to Bengaluru over fears that their families would be against their relationship.

They rented a house and worked at a factory in the Jigani Industrial Area.

Sometime in 2015, Lingaraju visited his sister but soon found out about her relationship, something he was strongly against.

This led to a scuffle between the siblings.

Shivaputra quickly intervened and the couple overpowered Lingaraju, eventually resulting in his death.

In a bid to get rid of the body, the couple chopped up Lingaraju’s body and packed the remains into three bags.

They dumped the remains in several locations, including near a meat stall and by a lake.

During the initial investigation, police received information from the neighbours, naming the couple as the main suspects.

Police went to the factory where the couple worked and obtained their contact details.

Officials also contacted the victim’s relatives.

With the accused absconding, the police filed a closure report before the court but kept a watch on their whereabouts.

Although the initial investigation did not produce any new leads, the case was revived after they received a tip-off that Bhagyashree and Shivaputra were residing in Nashik, Maharashtra under new identities.

Based on the information, police tracked down the pair and brought them back to Bengaluru.

Police are currently questioning them over Lingaraju’s murder.

In India, there has been a number of gruesome murders.

In 2018, a man from Uttar Pradesh murdered and dismembered his fiancee after she exposed his extramarital affair.

When he was arrested, Jehangir Khan attempted to lie to the police before admitting to murdering Zenab Khan.
