Murder

A 29-year-old woman was strangled by her husband after she confronted him over his alleged extra marital affair in Delhi’s Paharganj. The woman was found in an unconscious state on Thursday morning with ligature marks on her neck. When she was rushed to the hospital she was declared brought dead.

Suspicion fell on the husband as the children of the deceased were with their grandparents and the husband was missing post midnight.

A photo of the deceased’s husband was taken from their house and the police began to trace the suspect.

The accused Sunny, an e-rickshaw driver, tried to flee in his vehicle. The police team started stopping e-rickshaw drivers in the vicinity and tried to identify the suspect through his photograph.

Meanwhile, a policeman saw a person who turned around his e-rickshaw and tried to escape from the spot where the team was checking the vehicles but the police team apprehended the suspect.

“During interrogation, the suspect confessed to having strangulated his wife with her chunni after having a heated altercation over the issue of his extra marital relation,” said Sanjay Bhatia, DCP Central Delhi.

NRI-man

A 43-year-old man from Himachal Pradesh, who had come to India from Dubai in January but could not return due to Covid-19 restrictions, hanged himself in a central Delhi hotel, police said on Saturday.

Deceased Balwinder Singh’s kin alleged that he took the extreme step due to a fake visa racket he fell for.

Balwinder Singh and three others arrived in Delhi on Thursday. He opted to stay separately in a Nabi Karim hotel where he ended his life.

When he did not order breakfast and lunch, the hotel staff became suspicious and called police who found him hanging in the room. A suicide note was found from his possession.

“He was found hanging from a ceiling fan with his turban on Friday afternoon. We rushed him to the RML Hospital but he was declared brought dead. A suicide note running into 10 pages was seized, in which he said that no one is responsible for his death. However, we are verifying the suicide note,” said Sanjay Bhatia, DCP Central.

The police said that his family, including brothers, have ruled out any foul play though some relatives suspect that he along with three others was duped by a man on the pretext of arranging visas.

“Balwinder had taken approximately Rs 1.5 lakh each from the three men who accompanied him to Delhi from Mandi for visas. He was in touch with a man on mobile phone for visas. After reaching Delhi, the man did not pick up the phone. It may be one of the reasons for his extreme step,” said a relative.

Balwinder was working in a Dubai firm for around 10 years. He is survived by his wife and three children.

The body has been sent for post-mortem. Inquest proceedings under Section 174 of the CrPC are on.
