New Delhi, May 8 (IANS) A 30-year-old man has been arrested here for allegedly strangling his wife for not conceiving and because she would not let him marry another woman, the police said Thursday. Sanjay was arrested from Hedgewar Hospital, where he had taken his wife Kavita for admission Wednesday evening after telling his in-laws that she had fallen ill.
“Doctors at the hospital declared Kavita ‘brought dead’ but suspected foul play. A medical report confirmed she was murdered,” said a police official.
“We detained him. Sanjay broke down and confessed he had strangled her. He said Kavita was unable to conceive in seven years of married life. So he wanted to marry another woman. Kavita objected to his plans and so he murdered her,” the official added.
