Severely beaten by husband: Woman breaths her last in the hospital

Puttur: She was found bleeding in the middle of the road a few days ago. Her husband physically assaulted her and abandoned her on the road of Uppinangady. All the miseries of that lady came to an end on Tuesday July 7 in a hospital where she breathed her last after failing to respond to the treatment.

The 42 year old lady has been identified as Dharnamma, a resident of Hirebandady village. She was married to Shivakumar from Madikeri about eight years back.

Dharnamma received her share from ancestral property and they built a small house in Hirebandady. The house was later sold to Dharnamma's brother, Shivanna Gowda, after which the two started living with Shivakumar's sister at Mysuru.

A few days back the couple came to Uppinangady. It is alleged that Shivakumar, who mercilessly beat up his wife, escaped after dumping Dharnamma on the road near a hotel at Uppinangady. The people, who saw her lying there in helpless condition, admitted her into the government hospital here.

The family of Dharnamma was not in talking terms and the husband was absconding Dharnamma was being treated as a destitute there.

After she died on Tuesday, her brothers refused to even claim her body, it is gathered. Therefore, her body has been preserved in the mortuary at Mangaluru. The police have asked her relatives or heirs if any to contact Uppinangady station.
