In a gruesome twist to what was supposed to have been a blissful first night for a newly-wed couple turned out to be tragic when the bride was brutally murdered by her husband on the very night of her wedding, after which he took his own life.

The incident took place in the Tiruvallur district in Karnataka. The incident has shocked the residents of Ponneri in Tiruvallur. Sandhya (22) and Nethivasan (28) got engaged a year ago. They were supposed to tie the knot in March.

“Due to the lockdown, the marriage got postponed. It was finally held on Wednesday,” said a policeman. The couple tied the knot on the 10th of June 2020 at a temple after which the people who attended the ceremony returned to the groom’s house.

On the same night, the couple’s relatives heard Sandhya screaming and at the same time, Nethivasan was seen running out of the house at 10:30 pm. This frightened everyone and they rushed to the bedroom. As soon as they opened the bedroom door, they saw Sandhya lying dead, with bloodstains all over. She was attacked by a crowbar on the head.

They immediately informed the police. Upon being alerted, the police launched a manhunt. On the 11th of June 2020, Thursday, they found that Nethivasan had hanged himself to death from a tree nearby. The police are probing the reason for the murder and suicide.
