A 28-year-old man strangled his 25-year-old wife after having sex with her in Hamirpur district on Saturday. The murder came to light on Sunday after police recovered the body from a farm field. Following a complaint by the family members of the woman, the police arrested her husband who has confessed to having intercourse with her and then strangling her using her ‘dupatta’, police said on Sunday.
The victim, identified as Kanchan (25), hailed from Pari Ojha locality in Hamirpur while her accused husband Amit Lal is a native of Nasirpur village in Kanpur Dehat district. The two were married about three years ago and have a two-year-old son. Kanchan often had fights with her husband and in-laws, who allegedly used to torture her for dowry.
“Fed up with constant harassment by her husband and in-laws, Kanchan had gone to her parent`s house in Hamirpur on January 4 from where she disappeared under mysterious circumstances on February 2. Subsequently, her parents lodged a missing complaint at Kuchecha police out-post which comes under Sadar Kotwali police station on February 3,” said the police.
When she remained untraceable, her parents approached SP Hamirpur Narendra Kumar Singh suspecting their son-in-law’s hand behind their daughter’s disappearance. Circle Officer (City) Anurag Singh said, “The accused, who was arrested from Kanpur Dehat on Saturday, has stated that he wanted to live with his wife but she and her parents were objecting to this arrangement. He then hatched a plot to kill her.”
“He said that over the pretext of giving her money, he lured his wife and asked her to come to the Hamirpur town. From there he took her to a nearby field where he first had intercourse with her and then strangled her and threw away her mobile phone in a river. He also hid her body in a nearby field and escaped thereafter. The body, which was recovered from fields on Sunday, was sent for post-mortem examination. An FIR under relevant sections of IPC, including 302, against the accused, has been lodged and he has been sent to jail,” Singh added.
