Wife, paramour arrested for killing man after being caught having illicit relationship
A married woman and her paramour have been arrested for allegedly killing the woman’s husband — after he came to know about their illicit relationship — at his residence at Samalka village in South-west Delhi, police said on Saturday.
The accused man, identified as Sonu (23), is the marketing supervisor at a chewing tobacco company here. He is a native of Kannauj district in Uttar Pradesh and had come to Samalka village around four months ago, said a senior police official.
Sonu was a neighbour of the deceased and got involved in a relationship with his wife in a short span of time, said the official.
According to the police, on October 1, a body was found dumped outside a farm house in Kapashera border. The deceased was later identified as Manoj, who had <g data-gr-id="36"><g data-gr-id="34">mark</g></g> on his throat suggesting that he was strangulated and a case of murder was registered.
During <g data-gr-id="32">investigation</g>, it emerged that one of their neighbours, who later turned out to be Sonu, was constantly in touch with Manoj’s wife throughout the period. When Sonu was interrogated at length, he broke down and narrated the entire incident.
On the night of September 30, Sonu went to the deceased person’s house, where they both got drunk. When Manoj passed out, Sonu allegedly moved to another room with Manoj’s wife.
In an hour or so, Manoj woke up and caught the two in a compromising position. Manoj started abusing both of them and the duo allegedly decided to eliminate him, said DCP (South-west) R A Sanjeev.
Sonu allegedly <g data-gr-id="33">stangulated</g> Manoj with a towel and also hit him multiple times with a brick. Once they were convinced that he was dead, they decided to <g data-gr-id="38">dispose the body off</g> before dawn, said Sanjeev.
Sonu took out his scooter and placed Manoj’s body between himself and the woman.
The accused dropped Manoj’s body near Kapashera and also threw his slippers and mobile phone nearby to make it seem like a case of <g data-gr-id="41">accident</g>, after which they returned to Manoj’s residence, said Sanjeev. Both accused have been arrested and the weapons of <g data-gr-id="40">offence</g> have been recovered by the police, he added.
