: A 32-year-old anganwadi worker who went missing on Tuesday was found dead in a hotel room in Kalasipalya on Friday morning. Police have booked a case of murder against the woman’s neighbours involvement in murder case, based on her husband’s complaint.

Kamala M, a resident of Lalbagh Siddapura, worked at an anganwadi in Bengaluru’s Cement Colony

Deputy Commissioner of Police (West sub division), Sanjeev Patil, said that the woman’s body was discovered by the staff at the lodging facility after they opened the door to the room which Kamala had rented, as a foul odour was emanating.  The hotel staff contacted Kamala’s family members and after they arrived, the door to the room was opened, only to find that she was dead.

Sanjeev M Patil, deputy commissioner of police (west), said Kamala’s husband Obalesh L had filed a missing person’s complaint with Siddapura police on Thursday, two days after his efforts to trace her went in vain. The DCP said Kamala entered the hotel room with her neighbour Dileep Kumar, a tailor who also went missing on Tuesday, around 11.30am. CCTV footage shows Kumar leaving the hotel around 2.30pm.
Obalesh suspects Kamala had a relationship with Kumar and has accused the latter of killing her.
