REASI, Apr 25: A young man was arrested for allegedly killing his 20-year-old wife who was found hanging inside a shed at village Mallikot in Chassana, April 14.
The accused husband, namely Mangal Singh, resident of Mallikot village, was arrested after the interim medical report of his wife Sita Devi revealed that her death was not a suicide but a murder.
Sita Devi was found hanging inside a goat shed at her house on April 14 and her in-laws tried to pass it as a case of suicide.
The preliminary investigation pointed towards some domestic dispute as a motive behind the murder. Police was suspicious from the day one and questioned several persons before the interim medical report helped in concluding that the woman had not committed suicide but her body was hanged to cover up the crime.
Thereafter, the inquest proceedings were converted into a murder case and further investigation was underway.
SSP Reasi Shailender Singh has directed the SDPO Mahore to monitor collection of each oral and scientific evidence against the accused persons and proceed the investigation on priority. Final charge sheet will be produced in the court of law after legal scrutiny of evidences in the case file by the prosecution wing of the District Police Office Reasi.
