Wife, lover get life term for murdering husband

A woman and her lover have been sentenced to life imprisonment by a Delhi court for stabbing her husband to death. Additional Sessions Judge sentenced 37-year-old Rekha and her 22-year-old lover, Naveen Dabas, for killing Vinod last year.

In a 141-page judgement, the court held the two guilty of murdering him and destroying evidence. The court said the two accused had broken the victim’s trust.

“Naveen was a tutor for Rekha’s children, and she had developed intimacy with him, after which they conspired to kill Vinod. So they had broken Vinod’s trust and left the children in a lurch,” the court said.

According to the prosecution, when Vinod came to know about the relationship, he scolded his wife and even assaulted up.

Fed up with his objection to her intimacy with Naveen, she colluded with him and his friend, Mandeep, and took Vinod to a park near her house. Then the three stabbed him to death.

Then they threw away the knives and Rekha’s cellphone into a gutter to destroy evidence.

However, the court acquitted Mandeep of murder charges. It also imposed a fine of Rs 12,000 on Naveen and Rs 7,000 on Rekha.
