BANGALORE: Unable to bear harassment by her husband, a 65-year-old woman allegedly bludgeoned him to death in a vacant site off Hosur Road in Wilson Garden police station limits on Monday.

According to the police, Arjunappa (75), a rag picker, was living with his wife, Channamma (65), in a makeshift tent in the vacant site. Arjunappa, who had the habit of consuming alcohol, had frequent quarrels with his wife and allegedly harassed her.
