New Delhi, May 10 (IANS) A man, who fled after killing his wife here over dowry, has been arrested from Gurgaon, police said Tuesday.

Subhas Kumar, who hails from Bokaro in Jharkhand, was arrested Monday when he visited a friend to borrow some money.

According to police, Subhas had fled after strangling his wife in their rented house in Malviya Nagar in south Delhi April 22.

“The body was recovered by the landlord two days later and we were able to find details about him after the landlord produced the tenant verification form filled by him,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Chhaya Sharma said.

Police said Subhas had first fled to a Maoist-affected area on the Bihar-West Bengal border before returning to Gurgaon.

During interrogation, it was revealed that he started harassing his wife and her family members for not bringing sufficient dowry, just a few days after the marriage.

He had then started beating her and finally murdered her, Sharma said.
