On September 5, 2015, a few messages came to the WhatsApp of the Terminal Manager of Kempa Gowda Airport in Bangalore. There were messages indicating that bombs had been placed on three international flights. But all the messages had a terroristic style
- Islamic state wins. Air France to Paris and Haj Flight to Jeddah will be blasted on air.’
- Third target for today. Lufthansa to Germany.’
- IS wins will spoil India. Stop if you can Allah.
Some of the messages that started like this were received that day. Fearing for security, two flights were canceled immediately. The departing aircraft was taken to a secluded area and inspected. In fact, the security officials were panicked. Such a big threat has not come in recent times. Many flights were canceled and delayed that day. Just then, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Anti-Terrorist Squad, which deals with terrorism, stepped in and intensified the checks. Priority was given to the safety of the flights. But after it was confirmed that the message was fake, an investigation started to find out who sent this fake message. The SIM card of that sent number was in the name of a Malayali. A Saju Jose. When I checked his location, that place was near Madiwala where many Malayalis live in Bangalore.
The police rushed there immediately. The tracking of the SIM card was to a flat. There they find Saju Jose’s flat.
He said that he does not use such a number and that he did not know anything about this fake message. But the police got some other evidence from there. A skull mask, gloves and some IS documents were recovered from there.
But only the mobile phone that sent the fake message was not found from there. Anyway, Saju Jose was arrested. He was taken to Madiwala police station for questioning. He was denying everything from the beginning.
It was then that the station’s cyber cell unit discovered something else. There is a Facebook account in the name of Saju Jose. In which he is following the terrorist organization IS.
With that, the police confirmed that he was associated with a terrorist organization. But he is not aware of such a Facebook account. He said that all this is someone trying to trap him.
He did not confess to the crime at any stage of interrogation. So the police were also suspicious. But to their shock, the location of the said phone has changed in the tracking. The police were shocked to see that location!
The location of the controversial phone was then that police station. The shocked policemen were met by his wife who came running after hearing the news of her husband’s arrest. The location of the phone was in the car they came in. The phone was under the carpet of the car.
But he does not use such a phone. He repeated again that it was not his. Finally, the police took it and conducted a detailed investigation. It was understood that the threat message was sent from it. With that, the police again started a serious investigation.
The police came to their flat with the phone and learned the shocking truth. That the Wi-Fi connection at Saju Jose’s house is not connected to that phone. Instead, it was understood that the Wifi was in another apartment in that flat itself.
That inquiry came to a young man who was their immediate neighbor.
An engineer named Gokul lived in that house. It wasn’t long after he came to that flat. It’s only been a year. Why could he have done such a great harm? The police did not catch anything. After the police properly quashed Gokul, he began to tell his story.
Gokul hails from Thrissur district of Kerala. He had a sweetheart since his school days. Thankfully, that love affair continued till the end of engineering. But the family stopped it from reaching the wedding. The reason was that both of them belonged to two communities. Seeing that his lover was going to marry someone else’s wife, he later took a train to Delhi for work.
Times have passed. Goku also got married. He married a teacher, the daughter of a police officer. His wife’s name was Anuradha and she had a child.
He was working for an internet service provider then. If he goes to work in the morning, he will come home very late. Even when he reaches home, he is in front of the laptop. This ruined their married life.
He came to know that his wife, a teacher, was having an affair with one of his students through messages on her mobile phone. Gokul has a child in this relationship so he decides to forgive it. He spoke to her about the same and made her swear that she would not continue the relationship.
But then after some days he again saw the student’s messages on her mobile. This time he was not ready to forgive. Instead he used his computer skills and criminal mind to create an email in the name of a Swami.
Knowing that his wife was a perfect devotee, he sent messages to her in Swami’s name. He was forced to tell Swami about the mistakes he had made. She told everything to Swami. After getting everything he closed Swami’s email and started another email as Asha Devi as Swami’s follower. Talked to his wife through it.
Gradually Asha Devi became Gokul’s wife Anuradha’s spiritual guru.
Asha Devi told Anuradha that they can perform a pooja to keep her husband and lover together and for that she should send her nude pictures with her lover. She sent some such pictures.
Gokul kept all this. Another day she was asked to come to the pooja room unconscious as part of the pooja. He was asked to recite some puja mantras. Anuradha took half a bottle of brandy for this purpose. It happened!
A Ganesha idol fell on Anuradha’s head. Anuradha was killed in the puja room with her head cracked and bleeding. Before this, the husband Gokul had shown the story of his wife’s affair and the photos to his wife’s father.
He told his father-in-law that despite knowing everything, I am forgiving her for the sake of the child. Therefore, he had great respect for his son-in-law.
But he didn’t understand Gokul’s mischief in his mind.
Everyone considered Anuradha’s death as an asthmatic death. Everyone assumed that he might have got drunk and hit his head on the metal idol and died. That’s how Gokul dressed everyone. But the police did not believe it. But Gokul’s wife gave a clean chit to the father-in-law and told the police not to investigate further. Things became easy for Gokul as he was also a police officer.
Gokul also thought of forgiving his wife at first. But that’s when his old girlfriend sends a request on social media. It was only when they started chatting that her marriage was not going well. With that, criminal intelligence was awakened in Gokul’s mind. Then why not accept the ex-girlfriend instead of the wife? Who is this ex-girlfriend? Saju Jose’s wife who tried to trap him in the fake bomb case earlier.
Even before this bomb case, he had made an attempt to avoid his girlfriend’s husband. It was a letter to the bishop saying that their marriage was not valid. But the bishop did a counseling session and fixed it all. Later, Saju tried to trap Jose with this fake bomb threat. Gokul’s ex-girlfriend, Saju’s wife, gave all the IDs of Saju Jose required for the fake SIM taken for this purpose.
But during the investigation of this case, he revealed that Gokul had killed his own wife. Even Anuradha’s parents had no doubt about that death. After her daughter’s death, she stayed with Gokul to take care of her daughter’s child.
Gokul spent five long years to implement these plans. Gokul, who was in Delhi, moved to Bangalore by renting a flat near her for his girlfriend. Later, he got rid of his wife and finally got caught while trying to get rid of his girlfriend’s husband as well. That too was completely unexpected.
A good undertaking for such a smart techie. Wifi connected from own flat. That big criminal got stuck in the loop hole given by that one god. Otherwise Anuradha’s death would not have come to light. Everyone is of the opinion that if he used this intelligence for good things.
Finally, let me tell you a few things about this strange and incredible story.
Gokul’s wife Anuradha was a devotee of Shirdhisai Baba who was murdered. But Asha (who is actually Gokul herself), a con artist who pretended to be Baba’s follower, got the woman, Anuradha took a hotel room, took nude photos of herself under the shower with her boyfriend, and gave them to Gokul. It is strange not to be suspicious when Baba’s follower asks for alcohol, nudity, etc.
Anuradha’s father was a former Deputy Superintendent of Police. It seems ironic that he, having seen so many criminals, could not understand his son-in-law’s lies and recognize his daughter’s death as murder.
At the same time, Saju Jose’s marriage relationship was also not stable. From the beginning, there were problems in the relationship. That made things easier for Gokul and gave him hope. It was because of the same flaws in both these relationships that things turned to murder.
In some places it is seen that Saju Jose’s wife’s name is Dhanya Babu, however Gokul got the duplicate key of Saju Jose’s apartment through Dhanya. That’s how Gokul was tapping their land phone line. Moreover, the police say that false evidence was deposited in Gokul Saju’s house to prove the existence of terrorism using a fake key. In the same way, a fake SIM card was taken from Saju’s house by arranging IDs.
Saju’s wife was questioned for several hours by three women SI’s of the Bangalore police to find out if she was involved in all these crimes. But the police finally confirmed that they were not directly involved in this.
Another strange thing is that Saju’s wife will also look after Gokul’s child. They reveal that Gokul endured a lot of hardships for himself. Naturally, it can be assumed that the relationship with Saju is broken, but it is not clear how they will get Gokul’s child. We have to assume that this case has deeper roots than meets the eye.
Anyway, this blind genius is destined to spend the rest of his life in prison.
