A 40-year-old yoga trainer allegedly killed by her husband who suspected that she was having an affair with another person, police said on Sunday.

The police have arrested the woman's husband Paramjeet Singh (45).

The incident took place on Tuesday, they said.

The woman -- Ravneet Kaur -- a resident of Model Town-3 here was taken to the Pentamed Hospital where she was declared brought dead, the police said.

Kaur was a yoga trainer and used to visit a gym twice a day. Singh suspected that she was having an affair and strangulated her to death, a senior police officer said.

The post-mortem report came on Saturday which stated that she was manually strangulated and there was no external injury mark, the police said.
