Who is Prathima:

KS Prathima, aged 45, held the esteemed position of Deputy Director within the Karnataka government’s Department of Mines and Geology. Residing in Doddakallasandra, southern Bengaluru, Prathima lived on the first floor of a two-story independent house, with another family occupying the ground floor. While her husband, a farmer working in the Shivamogga district, was away during the time of the tragic incident, her son was away attending school in Mangaluru. It was Prathima’s brother who discovered her lifeless body, having grown concerned after numerous unsuccessful attempts to reach her.

How was she murdered:

The gruesome discovery revealed Prathima’s body with her throat slit. The forensics team, alongside the police, scoured the area for any potential clues, while neighbors claimed they had heard no unusual sounds during the estimated time of the incident, which the authorities believe occurred between 8 and 8:30 pm.

Police Investigation:

As the police delve deeper into the case, they are also examining the professional endeavors of Prathima. One notable investigation involved an incident of illegal quarrying, where Prathima conducted a physical examination of a quarrying site, subsequently submitting a report to the government indicating a loss of Rs 25.35 lakh. This report led to the filing of an FIR against a BJP MLA and three others. Moreover, it was revealed that Prathima was part of a joint inspection team, comprising the police and the local tahsildar, conducting investigations into illegal blasts and quarrying across ten sites in Yelahanka. Despite her involvement in these high-profile cases, an investigator confirmed that the police had not reached out to him concerning Prathima’s murder.

With the investigation ongoing and the police working tirelessly to uncover the truth, this remains a developing story. As more details come to light, we continue to provide updates to this distressing incident.
