TV anchors go on mute when a woman stabs her live-in partner. We never see endless debates on “intimate partner violence” or lecturing by designer women rights activists.
In a recent incident reported from Karnataka, a woman allegedly stabbed her male live-in partner to death after a heated argument.
Renuka Basavaraju Bandiwaddar (34) also known as Rekha Gowda is a single mom who has a six-year-old daughter.
Renuka is a BA dropout and has been living in Bengaluru for the past 15-years. She didn’t have a job and went to pubs with single men and gave them company. She wanted to lead a luxurious life.
The woman had been in a live-in relationship with Javed (29) and the two were living at at a service flat in Akshayanagar, a neighbourhood off Bannerghatta Road in Hulimavu. Javed was a mobile service technician from Kannur in Kerala.
The couple was residing together since the past three and a half years, staying in hotels, lodges, service flats, and rental homes among other places. They often fought over Renuka’s alleged connections with other men. On Tuesday, the fight took an ugly turn, where the woman turned violent and allegedly stabbed her partner in the chest in a fit of rage.
Renuka’s minor daughter was also present in the flat at the time of this incident.
The apartment in which the crime took place was on the second level of a multi-story structure that had been booked by the deceased, Javed, for three days starting on September 2.
According to local police, the neighbours could sense something was wrong and rushed to the said flat. They witnessed Renuka sitting next to Javed who was lying in a puddle of blood. The victim was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced brought dead.
The Hulimavu police has detained Renuka after she confessed to her crime. Javed’s body was handed over to his family on Wednesday by the police.
Voice For Men India Note: Everytime live-in partners murder each other, we raise questions over the sanctity of such relationships. However, brutal murders also happen within marriages, so it may be unfair to ridicule the nature of a relationship completely. Crimes have no gender, no pattern. Every crime must be called out irrespective of who is the perpetrator or victim.
