"I don't know what my future holds, now wandering around at some place": Rahul admits beating his wife

rahul

KOZHIKODE: In a live session on social media, Rahul P Gopal, the man accused in Pantheerankavu domestic violence case, admitted that he had beaten his wife but denied asking for dowry.

'I don't know what my future holds. Now I am wandering around at some place without even eating. There are two reasons for not staying in my country. My mother can't bear to see me arrested. I was afraid my mother would die on seeing that. And there were threats against me. Her(wife) brother threatened that he has people in Kondotty and will make me suffer. I was not willing to take risks against such things," Rahul said.

"It's my life that you all are enjoying now. This is a life which I have built in about thirty years. I had committed the mistake of hitting her and was ready to accept any punishment for that. But it was never for dowry or for a car. Why do I need a car in my native place when I am working in Germany? I came back here after selling my bike," he said.

"No one in my family knows how to drive. And what is the point of having a car there? A lot of accusations without any sense are being made against me. I have indeed hit your daughter, and I can admit it anywhere, but why are you making dowry accusations," Rahul said in the video.

The last known location of Rahul's mobile phone was in Karnataka. It is suspected that he reached Bengaluru by road from Kozhikode and went to Singapore from there. However, the police have not officially confirmed this.
