BENGALURU: A 54-year-old inmate of an old age home in Yeshwantpur was arrested on Saturday on charges of murdering an 82-year old fellow inmate last week. Four staffers of Usuru Foundation, which runs the home, were also arrested for allegedly destroying evidence.
According to police, the murder suspect had joined the old age home a few months ago and was under depression. The suspect, Kamalamma, 82, a resident of Banashankari Layout, and another woman were put in one room at the home and not provided food. The staffers are suspected to have resorted to such a measure to discipline the women, who they found were restive. The women were not even allowed to use the toilet.
The suspect allegedly beat Kamalamma to death using a chair, cops said.
Foundation owner Yogesh, and his staffer Bhaskar RK, Nohajohn Martin alias John and Manju allegedly destroyed evidence and were put behind bars.
Police said Kamalamma had been admitted to the foundation’s home at Nagarbhavi on March 9. Her son Ramachandra GK alleged he was paying Rs 10,000 every month to the foundation. Kamalamma was shifted to its Yeshwantpur branch in July allegedly without his knowledge.
The staff of the home found Kamalamma murdered and tried to cover up the matter. Yogesh called Ramachandra around 5pm on August 7 and said his mother was critical. Yogesh found his mother had sustained head injuries. The staff told him a woman inmate of the home had murdered her. But he suspected the involvement of staffers in the incident.

Police arrested the suspect for allegedly killing Kamalamma and the four others for destroying evidence to make it look like she had died after an accidental fall.
