Hyderabad: A 40-year-old man, who was attacked by a three-member group over an alleged extramarital affair last Friday at Janatha Colony in Kukatpally, died late on Wednesday.
The man, Appala Swamy, a tailor from Janatha Colony, who lost his wife nine years ago, is survived by three daughters. According to the Kukatpally police, the suspect Sanjeeva Rao, the husband of Buddamma, a worker in Swamy’s shop bore a grudge against him suspecting an extramarital affair between them.
On May 11 around 11.30 pm, Rao along with two of his associates, barged into Swamy’s shop about 300 metres from his house and attacked him.
“They knocked on the door and when Swamy, who was sleeping inside, opened the door, they barged in and attacked him with their hands and the blunt objects available in the shop,” police said. Locals who heard noises from the shop rushed to Swamy’s rescue and took him to the house. Since there were no external injuries, they did not take him to hospital. However, on Tuesday, he complained of uneasiness and breathlessness. He died while being shifted by his neighbours to Gandhi Hospital.
The Kukatpally police have booked a case and are investigating.
