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.
