Contractor Shahbaz had bought a bungalow in Nagraa and soon he was going to move there. Sheila had talked of staying with the contractor and the angry Gauri Shankar went to his village. Gauri Shankar had gone to the police three months ago to report the contractor and Sheila’s affair.
After leaving Jalandhar in a huff, Gauri Shankar came back to Jalandhar on May 20. When Sheila went to get some water, Gauri Shankar mercilessly attacked Shabaaz with the meat cleaver.
The attack was so brutal that one of his eyes came out and within minutes he was soaked in blood.
Sheila, wife of Gauri Shankar, admitted that her husband would beat her and was a drunk. A couple of months, she moved along with her three children in the quarters next to the contractor’s building.
Shabaaz was then taken to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The murder weapon has been recovered from the crime scene and the accused is absconding.
According to information received from the police, accused Gauri Shankar is from Chhatarpur district town of Khajuraho in Madhya Pradesh, while Shabaaz was from Bihar’s district Bhagalpur.
