Gurugram: Gurugram was once again witnessing to a crime where on the basis of suspicion a husband brutally murdered his wife. The latest case involved the murder of 20-year-old woman identified as Kajal who was murdered by her husband Dharmendra.
On Sunday night, he beat her repeatedly with a stone and then crusher her face with the sharp object. On Monday morning, the Gurugram police found the blood laden body of the deceased in Nathupur. Subsequently, the law enforcement officials were able to arrest Dharmendra near the Delhi-Gurugram border.
According to police, Kajal who belonged from Assam had married Dharmendra just six months ago. They were residing in South Delhi's Chattar Pur area where Dharmendra was working in a local eatery.
In the short duration of their marriage, there were constant fights as Dharmendra on numerous occasion raised suspicion on his wife's character.
Sources in the police also highlighted that on numerous occasion, Dharmendra even resorted to domestic violence that further deepened the marital discord between the two even further.
On Sunday, Dharmendra asked Kajal to come with him to Gurugram where his brother resided. Midway there was again a heated argument between the two that eventually led to Dharmendra murdering his wife.
The case of murder has been filed in DLF Phase-3 police station under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The law enforcement officials are now trying to get in touch with her family in Assam so that the last rites of the deceased can take place.
"Immediately after the incident, we were able to quickly arrest Dharmendra from Aya Nagar that lies in Delhi-Gurugram border. He has confessed to his crime and said that the main reason for him to murder his wife was that he suspected her character.
We are trying to interrogate him further was it actually a crime that occurred in the fit of rage or was there any other reason also for him to have carried out this heinous crime," said a senior police official from Gurugram police.
On several occasions in the past, there have been cases where there have been brutal murders in the city due to marital strife. In one of the horrific crimes, a husband pushed his wife and mother of his two children from the eighth floor of his apartment on October 27, 2018, the day of Karva Chauth as he was having an extramarital affair. In yet another heinous crime, a husband bludgeoned his wife to death with a hammer in front of their two-year-old daughter in the fit of rage because of the heated argument between the two.
