According to the police sources here the victim, a resident of the neighboring Amethi district, was Mustkeem's 13th wife. Mustkeem had divorced his earlier 12 wives.
 
Sources said that Mustkeem had married for the 12th time around four years back. The couple also had a three month old baby.
 
The locals said that Mustkeem, a resident of Pure Kale Khan locality in the district, and his wife used to fight often over domestic issues. Mustkeen had even met his father-in-law a few days back and told him that he wanted to divorce his wife.
 
The 13th wife Mumtaz (name changed) went missing on Monday. On Thursday night her body was recovered from the fields near Chulamau village in the district. There were several injury marks on the body indicating that she must have been tortured before being strangled to death, police said.
