Palghar, Jan 25 (PTI) The police in Maharashtra’s Palghar district have arrested a 36-year-old tribal woman and four others on the charge of killing her husband over his alleged extramarital affair, an official said on Wednesday.

The man was found dead in his home at Kondle-Bandanpada village of Wada taluka around 10 pm on January 20, said Sachin Navadkar, the public relations officer of the Palghar police.

The police first registered a case of accidental death but upgraded it with IPC sections 302 (murder) after an autopsy showed that he had been strangulated and had internal head injuries.

A team from Wada police station worked on certain leads and intelligence inputs to zero in on five suspects, including the victim’s wife, and arrested them on Tuesday, said the official.

Investigations so far have revealed that the victim was in a relationship with another woman which enraged his wife. She then took the help of the four men to kill him, said the official. PTI COR NR NR NR
