Suspecting that his wife was having an affair, a Shahapur resident brutally killed her by inserting a broken alcohol bottle inside her vagina and strangulating her.
The Shahapur police, who found the woman’s body yesterday, have registered an FIR for rape and murder and arrested the accused.
According to the police, the 38-year-old accused used to work as a labourer; he later stopped because of his alcoholism. For their two children’s education and to give them a good life, the victim took up a job in a small packaging company along the Nashik highway four years ago. An officer said, “The accused used beat her up if she did overtime and started suspecting that she was having an affair. On Monday afternoon, when they had a huge fight over whether or not she should continue her job, he made a plan to kill her.”
“In the evening, he asked her to come with him for a walk and took her to an isolated place outside the village. There, he started beating her up and then raped her. He broke the bottle he had carried with him and inserted it in her vagina, stabbing it three-four times. Later, he checked whether or not she was alive, and strangulated her with her saree,” said a source.
Mahesh Shetey, senior inspector, said, “We found her body in small water pipeline. After identifying her, we called her family members, and during interrogation, the husband confessed to the crime. The couple’s two children have been sent to their grandparents. We have registered a case and are collecting evidence.”
Not the First Incident!
19-year-old aspiring model was allegedly killed by her boyfriend on suspicion of her “character” in Maharashtra’s Nagpur district, police said Sunday, adding that the accused has been arrested.
The victim is identified as Khushi Parihar, a resident of Nagpur, and the accused as Ashraf Sheikh. However, a Nagpur police official said they received information on Saturday morning about the body of a woman with her face crushed lying along Pandhurna-Nagpur highway.
Notably, police identified the victim through social media, he said, adding that Parihar used to participate in local fashion shows and was aspiring to become a model. Sheikh was later arrested, he said.
According to the official, Sheikh has “confessed” that he killed Parihar because he suspected her character and “closeness” with some youths.
Prima facie, Sheikh travelled with Parihar in his car on July 12 and later allegedly killed her by crushing her head at Savli Fata near Pandhurna-Nagpur highway, the official said.
In brief, the Nagpur (Rural) police registered the case and further investigation is underway.
