A woman and her paramour have been arrested along with one more person at Dombivli in Thane district of Maharashtra for allegedly killing her husband and they were arrested by the Kalyan crime branch unit of Thane police.
The crime branch officials began a search and checked the mobile phones of the man's wife and relatives.
"His wife, Laxmi Patil, was interrogated. However, she gave evasive answers and incorrect information about where her husband was on June 1 and 2. Police found that the woman had contacted Arvind alias Mari Ravindra Ram and Sunny Kumar Ramanand Sagar on those two days. Accordingly, they were called for questioning."
The officials reported that during their interrogation, it came to light that the woman was in an illicit relationship with Arvind, which her husband had come to know about. Therefore, she decided to eliminate him. As part of the plan, she took her husband to Arvind's house on June 2 at midnight, where they beat him with iron rods and strangulated him to death. The third accused also helped them in the crime. Later it was found that they dumped the body in a culvert at Shelu village in the neighboring Raigad district. After the offense came to light, the accused showed the spot where they had dumped the body.
The body was recovered on June 16, and a case under IPC section 302 (murder) and others was registered against the trio.
