Dalhi. A woman killed her husband as he forced her to get intimate with her brother and used to ‘supervise’ the act because he wanted a son to take the lineage and his family business forward. The woman and her brother and have been arrested.
The obsession was such that when his wife resisted, he beat her up, threatened to get her gangraped and sell her off to a brothel. The man, a father to a daughter even forced her to undergo a series of abortions.
She claimed she bore it all for a year. However, on Sunday, her patience ran out and she hatched a plan to kill her husband. That night, she allegedly spiked his dinner with sleeping pills and when he fell asleep, she strangled him.
The next morning she called the police and told them that her husband has been murdered. “It was a blind case. We received a call from the woman saying that her husband has been murdered. She was crying. To avert arrest she even concocted a story. She told us that two guests had come to visit her husband and they had a party after which they all slept in one room, while she slept in another room. She said that when she woke up the next morning, she saw that the room was locked from outside. When she opened the door, she found her husband dead on the bed and the two guests were missing,” an investigator said.
The police initially kept looking for the guests but could not get any clue. During investigation, the police then accessed the CCTV footage from the area that showed a man, who was limping, leaving the woman’s house at 3am.

Following her statement, we arrested the woman and her brother was also apprehended,” a police officer said.
