A 42-year-old man allegedly stabbed his wife to death in her office on Tuesday. The incident took place in Bhayander in Maharashtra’s Thane district. After committing the crime, the man surrendered to the police.
According to Senior Inspector, Bhayander police, RK Jadhav, the accused, Kumar Bhoir suspected his wife Veena (35) of having an extra-marital affair. As a result, they used to have frequent fights. Fed up, Veena had left their house on January 2 without informing Kumar after which he had registered a missing complaint.
On Tuesday morning, Kumar went to Veena’s office in Venkatesh Apartment, Bhayander (West). The couple soon started arguing in the office lobby. “Kumar then took out a knife and stabbed Veena 15 times and then fled the spot,” said Jadhav.
The office staff rushed Veena to a nearby private hospital. However, she was declared brought dead by the hospital.
“Meanwhile, Kumar came to us and surrendered. We have also seized the knife used by Kumar, which he had brought along,” said Jadhav.
The police then arrested Kumar for murder under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code.
