Woman held for hatching conspiracy to kill spouse

Abohar, September 15

A woman was arrested by the Sriganganagar police on Tuesday for hatching a conspiracy to get her husband murdered by her alleged paramour.

Investigation Officer Chanderjit Singh said Chak 25-PTD village resident Sulochana (25) was arrested and produced in a court, which sent her to judicial custody.

Ram Lal, alias Ramu Nayak (22), who owns a barber shop in the village, was earlier arrested for allegedly killing Kheta Ram Naik (28), Sulochana’s husband, on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday.

Investigations into the incident revealed the victim and Ram Lal were close friends and the latter frequented Kheta Ram’s house. He allegedly started an illicit relationship with the victim’s wife about eight months ago. Last week, Kheta Ram told Ram Lal to stop visiting his home. Sulochana and Ram Lal then allegedly conspired to eliminate him.

On Thursday, around 7 pm, Ram Lal took Kheta Ram to a link road on the pretext of having liquor. When the victim was under the influence of liquor, Ram Lal allegedly attacked him with a club and left. Kheta Ram was found dead on Friday. The police examined phone records of Sulochana, which revealed she was in touch with Ram Lal till the time of the murder. — OC
