On September 30, a car mechanic was found dead in MM Gate area of Agra police station. The police has arrested the mechanic’s wife and her paramour. According to the police, the husband caught his wife and her lover sitting together in the middle of the night on their terrace. It is then that the couple strangled the man.
SP City, Botre Rohan Pramod told media that on Wednesday morning, police received information about the death of Mukesh, son of Chhote Lal, a resident of Nali Gali. The victim’s body was lying on the bed at his home. There was also a scar on his neck as if someone has strangulated him. These evidences led to the possibility of murder. The field unit was called in and the investigation for the case commenced.
Deceased Mukesh is survived by a 16-year-old son, Abhishek, and a 14-year-old daughter, Pooja. The accused wife, Madhu told the officers that her husband had dinner at 10pm on Tuesday. Thereafter, both of them went to sleep in their room. Their children were already in their bedroom on the ground floor.
The next morning, their son Abhishek woke up around 8am and went to his father’s room. The boy tried several times to wake up Mukesh, but he was not responding. The body was lying cold.
A case of murder was then registered by Mukesh’s sister, Sunita.
Wife’s Call Details Were Tracked
SP City police briefed that Mukesh and Madhu were the only two people in the room. The wife also confirmed to the police, that besides the two, no one else entered the room. However, the cops found this suspicious.
They took her to the police station for interrogation. Meanwhile, Mukesh’s relatives also had doubted Madhu. Police then checked call details of the wife and found out that she was in constant touch with one particular number. That number turned out to be of Arun, a resident of the same locality, who is also a mechanic.
Police took Arun into their custody for questioning. Both the accused were interrogated separately. The paramour Arun confessed to the crime and later Madhu too admitted to the same.
Husband Learnt About Wife’s Affair
SP said that the husband and wife did not share a healthy relationship. Arun was younger than Madhu, which made the two start a conversation amongst them. Madhu used to talk to Arun often over the phone.
A week ago, Mukesh came to know about his wife’s affair. Reacting to the situation, the husband had broken his wife’s mobile phone. However, Madhu had a spare phone, with which she kept her communication on with Arun.
On Tuesday night, Mukesh fell asleep after having dinner. Arun arrived at around 1am. Both the wife and lover then went up and were sitting on the terrace. When the husband woke up, he started yelling and beating Madhu. It is then that the woman held Mukesh’s legs while Arun strangled him. After the murder, Arun escaped from the house.
