The victim is identified as Raj Kumar, while his wife was identified as Aarti. Raj had been working in Dubai for the past few years and had returned home in Jalandhar, Punjab just three months ago.
Raj had reportedly come to know about the alleged illicit relations of his wife. Due to that, he was not been on good terms with her. Raj had several scuffles on the issue, and on the unfateful night, they too fought.
As per the local police, “Raj was drunk and he thrashed his wife. The woman also exchanged heated arguments with him, following which she strangulated him with her duppata,” adding that the police had also recovered the duppata used to kill the man.
The wife initially staged a drama by calling the police and alleging her husband had died under mysterious circumstances. It was only after the woman was interrogated by the police that she confessed to having committed the crime.
A case under Section 302 of the IPC was registered against the accused and she was arrested.
