Mangaluru: Gruesome murder of Shreemathi Shetty – No clue on killer

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, May 13: Relating to the macabre murder of Shreemathi Shetty, resident of Amar Alva Lane in the city late night on Saturday, the police were groping in the dark till Monday morning for reasons behind this murder and also the identity of the culprits behind this dastardly act.

Shreemathi Shetty (35), was a native of Polali Mogaru. She owned a shop at Attavar engaged in repair of electrical equipment. The people of the city were taken aback by the sheer extent of enmity characterized by hacking the lady to death, cutting her body into pieces, chopping body parts and throwing them at different locations. The skin over the lady's chest was found to have been peeled off and the skull was stuffed into a helmet and then put into a gunny bag. Her limbs are yet to be found.

Shreemathi used to leave for her shop at 9 am everyday and took her lunch when leaving home in the morning. On Saturday, the employees at the shop called her but she did not respond. When they contacted her family members, they also did not have any information about her whereabouts. Even as the family was frantically searching for her, they got information on Sunday that she had been murdered.

Shreemathi, who used to live with the elder sister of her father in the past, had got her own house built at Amar Alva Lane four years back. After divorcing her first husband, she had married a distant relative from Madikeri, Sudeep, two years back. Her family was opposed to this alliance. After living with Sudeep for some time, she had applied for divorce from him too, as she found his character to be not good.

District in-charge minister, U T Khader, has instructed the city police commissioner to see that the accused are identified and arrested without delay. City police commissioner, Dr Sandeep Patil, said that CCTV camera footages are being checked and added that the police teams have got some important leads in this case.

    Very cruel act.. Very shocking.... Its very well planned murder to such an extent. After murdering by cutting into parts also not satisfied then peeled off the skin. Is there any respect to a human body that too for a woman? They will catch the culprit, putting inside the bar where he get everything free, then after some days someone will come with bail and he will be free again. This is encouragement our Govt is giving to such culprits . My appeal to the Police Dept catch the culprit immeidately and cut his parts too and make him to suffer when he is alive, he should know what is the pain. How much that Mrs. Shetty must have suffered God knows! Feeling very pity on her. May her Soul rest in peace. Mr. Prashant Suvarna hatsoff to you for assuring your help and cooperation.

    Election in Mangalore constituency for MP is over. So now there is no Durga Vahini nor any other so called nationalist will call for strike. Durga Vahini is controlled by men, to suppress women voices through this.

    Checking the mobile numbers which was active in that area where the body
    was dumped, and pin pointing to the last one, by checking the helmet, whether it is a newly purchased, and finding from where a similar helmet was purchased very recently all these factors can lead to the killer .. also it is clear that the intention of killer was not to hide the crime, he wanted it to be made public and send a message hear " this what you get , because you did this to me or the other" , definitely it is a hate crime, mean to say very much because the killer even after killing her could not feel sanctified with his act so he dismembered it. May her soul RIP.

    Yes... First one if we recall murder of a business man, Mr. Shetty, at udupi, who was killed very cruelly and then burnt his body mercilessly.. This is more cruel than that.. Where he openly threw the pieces at different places and peeled off her skin like a chicken.. His revenge is so much that even her limbs he has hidden somewhere or must have made soup and drank I think. Both incidents cannot be forgotten..

    I had known this lady as i often used to get many items repaired at her shop.I still have a few items left for repairs there and was asked to come tomorrow and take then together. I'm Shocked that someone could do such a gruesome murder of this hardworking selfmade bizwoman. As a cable operator operating in this area for more than30yrs now i have read that there was a CCTV grab of a person coming on a white Activa to dump the gunny bag opp the petrol pump, i wonder if there is a simlar connection b/w the disruption of many CATV fibre cables in Attavar area around Attavar of many networks because the person who came to cut the wires had also come on a white scooter wearing a blue shirt at about11.30 pm on Friday night as recorded on another CCTV brain in another camera close to our office. Now it should not be to difficult for our PDept2 put2&2 together by recording all traffic clips of all white scooters of persons wearing blue shirt and probably wearing white helmet b/w 10-12Pm& get the suspect who must have done this so that his crime goes unnoticed. We Are willing to cooperate with the Dept closely in this connection.

    Very very sad... Up-to what extent this enmity is this! Peeling off her skin, dumping her head into helmet, chopping and some parts of her limbs misplaced.. my goodness. Such bad luck ?? No enemy should go through such things.. Worst than cannibals.. Unable to eat and drink and sleep after reading this.. If she is from polali/amar Alva road, owning shop at attavar, how come missing complaint filed at kadri station? Total mystery. May Shreemathi's soul rest in peace 🙏🙏

    Because as per the law the body was found in Kadri which is Kadri Police Station Limits. Hence it gets registered under that station for further investigation.

    Vinay, according to the first report, it's given that missing complaint was lodged two days ago at Kadri station. Before only they lodged the complaint that she is missing.. Really shocking

    The intensity of hatred by the perpetrator shall be extreme to do such a bestial act. Death punishment shall be given whoever has done. Also this incident shall not allowed to be communalize. Yesterday some bhakts were asking " Where are the liberals?". These bhakts only know how to communalize incidents. Rest in peace sister Shreemati.
