To hoodwink cops, victim’s wife had said that when her husband was alone, some outsider entered the house and killed him
The Hush Post: In a hard-to-believe incident, a 65-year-old woman killed her husband, who was 75-year-old, accusing the latter of having two extra-marital affairs. The woman killed her husband by banging his head with a paver block. The incident, that took place on Monday from Chembur in Mumbai, was reported by DNA on Wednesday.
The deceased, identified as Chotelal Mourya, was a resident of Chembur.
As per police, Chotelal’s body was found in a pool of blood in his house on Monday. In the prima facie investigation, the cops smelt a foul play and suspected it to be a murder.
Initially the police lodged an FIR of trespassing on the complaint of the deceased man’s wife. The victim’s wife, in her statement to the police, had stated that when Chotelal was alone in the house, some outsider entered the house and killed him, DNA reported.
But, when the police investigated the matter, they found the woman’s statement to be false. “Police Inspector Manish Shirke and PSI Sagar Kalekar started the probe, and while recording statements of other witnesses it was found that no one trespassed. We then grilled the woman and she confessed that she killed him due to his ‘affairs’. We have arrested her and she would be produced in the court tomorrow,” Shahaji Umap, Deputy Commissioner Police was quoted as saying.
