Woman, paramour held for killing husband
Thane : A woman and her paramour were arrested for allegedly killing her 36-year-old husband in Bhiwandi town of the district, police said today.
The woman, Asu Mohanram Chowdhari (20), a resident of Temghar in Bhiwandi, had illicit relations with one Anil Srivastav (21), also a resident of the same area. Her husband Mohanram Bansidar Chowdhari came to know about the affair and disapproved of it, police PRO Gajanan Kadbule said.
When the accused found that Mohanram was becoming a hurdle in their love affair, they conspired to eliminate him.
At around 3 PM yesterday, Anil caught hold of Mohanram while the latter’s wife allegedly strangulated him to death, police said.
An offence under IPC sections 302 (murder) read with 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) was registered last night against the two accused who were arrested in the wee hours today, police said.
Further investigation into the case was being conducted by the Shanti Nagar police.
The body has been sent for postmortem, police added.
