Ludhiana, May 14

A city-based businessman strangled his wife to death at their residence in Atam Park here on Friday.

The Model Town police registered a case of murder against Harmesh Arora, husband of the deceased, Aarti Arora, their son Lovenish Arora, daughter Ritika Arora and Lovenish’s wife Shaina Arora.

The complainant, Rajan Kundra, deceased’s brother, said his sister got married to Harmesh in 1955. The couple had three children Lovenish, Ritika and Parmesh. Parmesh had been living in Canada while his two siblings were staying in Ludhiana.

The complainant said his sister was running Aarti Boutique at Atam Nagar and she was also a director in a factory, Arora Alloys, in the Focal Point area.

“Her husband was greedy as he wanted to usurp her boutique. Recently, he also removed my sister from the director’s post by forging her signatures. On May 13, when I went to meet my sister, she was under depression. She also apprised me then that her husband and his family members were planning to kill her,” he said.

He said this morning, he had gone to pick her sister from her home. When he reached the place, he was shocked to see that her husband and other family members were putting her in a car. She was in an unconscious state.

“When I asked the accused what happened to her, they fled the spot. Afterwards, I rushed her to hospital where doctors declared her brought dead,” he alleged.

Model Town SHO Inderjit Singh Boparai said raids were being conducted to nab all accused.
