Udupi: Vishala Ganiga murder case - SP Vishnuvardhan reveals explosive details


Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SP/JD)

Udupi, Jul 21: District superintendent of police (SP), N Vishnuvardhan, addressed a press meet here on Wednesday July 21 on the sensational Vishala Ganiga murder case, which the district have successfully cracked in spite of lack of evidences and absence of clues.

The SP praised his team of policemen for having been able to solve the case in such a short time even though there were no evidences, no eyewitnesses, and no CCTV clips. "Four police teams were formed to crack the case. All the CCTVs between Kundapur and Padubidri were verified but no clues were found. We also checked flight details besides questioning taxi drivers and other staff. People residing in the said flat were also questioned. Police teams visited Hassan, Andhra Pradesh and various other places in search of hints. We got one lead which said that one of the suspects was in Uttar Pradesh. With the help of Gorakhpur SP and his team, we searched for him. We then got another lead saying that he was near the Nepal border. He was arrested from there. This man confessed that he was hired by Ramakrishna to kill his wife. The murder plan was hatched six to seven months back," he explained.


Police press meet


One of the supari killers Swaminathan

Ramakrishna planned this murder when in Dubai. He paid two lac rupees as the fee of the contract killers. In March this year, the accused were shown the home and other places. On July 12, the supari killer called Ramakrishna over phone from Gorakhpur after which he came here and strangulated the lady to death.

The SP said that for a week his team had slogged it out and underwent a lot of struggles before tasting success at last.

Ramakrishna Ganiga has been remanded to police custody till July 23.

About the motive of the murder, the SP said that as per the husband's statement, there were differences between the two. However, he added that the investigation is still in initial stages and the police will look into the case from several other angles.

In this case, Ramakrishna had asked Vishala to return to the flat alone. Once she obliged, after about five to ten minutes, the supari killers reached there.

The SP said that Gorakhpur SP, Dinesh, extended lot of help to the police team. He also said that Manipal forensic team, Mangaluru forensic science laboratory team, inspector general of police review of the situation apart from the UP police helped the police in various ways. The supari amount was paid by bank fund transfer. Now, the police are on the lookout for the other supari killer and the man who introduced the killers to Ramakrishna. The SP said that Ramakrishna believed that he would not be nabbed as he was in Dubai and operated from there.

About the planning of the murder from Dubai, he said that another person was also involved in the case. That person had introduced Ramakrishna to supari killers. This person is yet to be identified. The killer's age is 38. The SP gave full credit to technical analysis combined with field level information, which enabled the team to solve the case.

It is learnt that Vishala never discussed about her husband with her family. A week back, Ramakrishna had called Vishala to pick up a parcel from one of his friends. The parcel contained a gift item. Ramakrishna did this to find whether Vishala was prepared to come alone when asked to do so. The arrest of the killer was made from Nepali border on July 19. The SP also said that notice has been issued to the flat owners for not installing CCTV cameras as per rules.

The SP added that the director general of police, Praveen Sood, has announced a reward of Rs 50,000 to the team involved in solving the murder case. Range IGP has issued commendation certificate to all the team members, he said.

    He could have divorced her paying alimony but instead he decided to kill her . We must realise that when two people cant get along best is to divorce rather than just hanging on with hate . very sad and congragulations to the police team who nabbed the criminal minded husband .

    Along with the easy money there comes the devil to destroy and to kill. Poor women paid with her life for no fault of her's. Hope the orphaned child is taken care of by the dear and near ones. Can't imagine what will go through her innocent mind when she comes to know that her mother was killed by her own father. Bless and protect this child O' God.

    He could have divorced her, the supari ammt paid to do this dirty job could be given to the wife as alimony. Why to kill that innocent lady with whom he had promised before god that he will take care of her. He never thought of the child, who is orphaned inspite of no fault. He will rot in Hell. RIP vishala.

    It simply saddens us not because Vishala has left her dear ones, the daughter has been orphaned - but because this has never been the culture of our society in South Kanara (Mangalore/Udupi....). Vishala's husband has brought our region to disrepute, he has destroyed the future of his daughter.... he should be punished by the law mercilessly. We pray - May Vishala's Soul Rest in Peace.

    Congratulations to SP Vishnuvardhan and your entire police team, for solving this mysterious murder death of Vishala Ganiga. Cannot digest, how can a husband can hire a killer to finish his own wife and mother of his own child. Total blindness to money, money and lust. Cannot rule out the hidden hand of black magic evil cult too.

    In the last comment I wrote if a person is carrying smart phone he can not escape from such crimes for sure. That is what has happened in this case. Although it was a organized crime. the culprit was caught at Nepal border in this case. It was possible only by GPS Tracking.

    Kudos to our able Police team from Udupi. They cracked such a complicated case in very short time. In this case the husband instead of living a happy and decent family life did such a horrible crime. Now let him rot in the confinement of jail and repent his crime till his death. May Vishala's soul rest in peace and may the innocent child of the couple get all the love and care from its caretakers.

    Shocking to say the least - Not culture of local people - Udupi - Mangalore - at best petty quarrels - between husband - wife-- etc etc -- most have influences and fear of GOD -- Now a Planned murder from several months - supari - by a family man - not even thought of child's future - society getting degraded by crime films - quick money - fast life - internet - mobile phones chats- late night activity etc - UNFORTUNATELY --meaning of compassion - empathy - spirituality - sacrifice - joy of good life - MORALS --not known or heard of --

    While a child is left orphaned and will live with hatred to her father and gruesome death of mother - will be extremely difficult to come to terms - it is a really very sad situation for the child - hope the whole traumatic situation handled well by near and dear ones -not easy - Further for a mere 2 lakh rupees there are people prepared to murder unknown persons & ruin entire families not that or advocate for any AMOUNT people have to kill - AS PER POLICE REPORTS and best of our knowledge HUSBAND - GANIGA - having names of GODS - RAMAKRISHNA --actually - True RAKSHASA -- is a ruthless diabolical an ULTIMATE in scheming murderer-

    Don't confuse Mr. RSRB! Vishala was killed by contract killers, paid by her own husband and Smitha was killed by her own husband, who may have not very rich!!! In both cases no other Community people are involved!!! Unfortunately, Shobakka can't add these two names in her (Agricultural ) list!!!

    This murder consist of EGO, JEALOUS and EQUAL RIGHTS IN EDUCATED COUPLE !! it is not new issue but sometimes it is going overboard and cant be tolerated ! then end of the result is killed or divorced !! This is a modern time stigma in micro families ! However, killing was not necessary here because every human being is right to live till he/she goes from the earth due to natural cause.

Y to his family, his community, what he told to udupi porbus doesn't happen? Or didnt happen? O kujuma, eating kaaju alongwith liquor everybody goez out of control and females have go through that "unwanted word" which waz told by you to Udupi porbus. Because of people like kaaju, womens are exploited and not by female demselves alone. Den blackmail her, harrass her and spoil name and make things gviral about her. Publicly slandering.
