Wife held for killing man

New Delhi, Sep 26, 2012, DHNS :

Had love affair with another man who killed victim

A 23-year-old woman along with her lover has been arrested for killing her husband after abducting him at Moti Nagar in west Delhi, police said on Wednesday.

The victim, Dhurav Kumar, a resident of Ram Road, ran a scrap metal shop. His wife Nitu and Mahesh Bhan, 23, were held over investigation after Dhurav’s brother Ramsagar Gupta approached police on September 20, reporting that he was missing since September 18.

“Dhurav and Nitu were married since 2009, but Nitu was involved in an extramarital affair with her neighbour Mahesh. They later hatched a conspiracy to kill Dhurav to get rid of him,” said V Renganathan, additional commissioner of police (west).

As per plan, Mahesh, a driver by profession, and two of his associates called Dhurav by luring him to purchase some articles and took him to Bawana jungle on the night of September 17.

“Dhurav was beaten up with iron rods and succumbed to head injuries at the spot. Mahesh paid Rs 50,000 to his associates for their help,” Renganathan added.

Mahesh’s name cropped up after call details of mobile phones of Dhurav, Nitu and other family members were obtained and analysed.

He was then apprehended near Zakhira flyover on September 20.

During interrogation, he confessed that he murdered Dhurav, and then helped police recover his body from Bawana jungle.

Mahesh also disclosed that he knew Nitu since 2010 and used to visit her house during Dhurav’s absence.

“However, Dhurav found out about Mahesh’s frequent visits and started behaving violently towards Nitu,” Renganathan said.

Dhurav’s suspicious behaviour strained his relations with Nitu.

Subsequently, she made a plan with Mahesh to kill Dhurav, and being blindly in love, Mahesh agreed to this.

Mahesh’s accomplices havebeen identified as Raju and Kallu, who hail from Uttar Pradesh.
They are absconding and efforts are being made to nab them.
