SRINAGAR,  May 28: Police today arrested wife and a Molvi in the killing of  her husband in Nowgam area of Srinagar.
Police said wife of the deceased had killed her property dealer husband along with a Molvi who was leading prayers in a local mosque.
Abiroo Shafi, a resident of Nowgam area, on the outskirts of Srinagar, died on March 11. He was a property dealer.
The family took it a normal case of death till they felt suspicious of the things that had happened in the family.
They informed the police and the investigations started which eventually led to the arrest of the wife – a mother of six year old daughter and her paramour, the Molvi, known as Tanveer Molvi, a resident of Lelhaar.
Police said they are waiting for the autopsy report but the killers have suggested that they had administered some tablets to him before killing him.
The accused lady belongs to Aloochibagh area of Srinagar and was married to Abiroo Shafi seven years ago.
Police sources said that the family had taken their son’s death as normal, till his widow started behaving abnormally. “She would talk to somebody on phone for most of the night and she was not as sad as she normally should have been. This led to the strong suspicion that something bad had happened,” they said.
When the police started investigations, it got various interesting insights into the case. “We were told by his friends that he would tell them that the Molvi is a fake, he talks something in mosque and does not believe in it,” one investigator said.
“He even told them that the Molvi had physical relations with women which is un-Islamic,” he added.
Besides, Shafi, according to police had sought help of a friend in tracing the call details of his wife. It was this detail that actually nailed the two.
