Patna: A newlywed woman identified as Rewati Kumari got arrested on the charge of murdering her husband three days after their wedding. The incident took place in the Lakhadi village of Gaya, Bihar.
Upendra Yadav, Kumari’s illicit lover, who helped her in the crime, was also found dead five days later, officials said on Thursday.
The accused was married to Ashok Kumar, on May 29 and Kumar disappeared from the village on May 31. His family registered a missing complaint with the local police station when they failed to reach him.
On June 1, a dead body was found in a pool of blood outside the village and the family members identified him as Ashok Kumar.
The district SSP, Aashish Bharti gave the responsibility to City SP Himanshu to crack this case.
"During the CDR of bride Rewati, she became the prime suspect in the murder case. When we arrested her on Wednesday and interrogated her, she confessed to the crime. Rewati confessed that she had an illicit relationship with her sister's husband, Upendra Yadav. Rewati and Upendra hatched the conspiracy and killed Ashok with a sharp edge weapon," Bharti said.
"Five days after the murder of Ashok, the dead body of Upendra Yadav was found at GT road in the jurisdiction of Aamas police station. Now, we are investigating who killed Upendra Yadav, and whether Rewati is involved in his murder also," Bharti said.
"We are waiting for the post-mortem report, call details and CCTV footage of the crime scene to find out the leads," he added.
