BIJNOR: Three days after a decomposed body of a 55-year-old woman was found inside her home in Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnor district, police arrested the victim’s nephew’s wife and her lover for the murder on Tuesday.
The incident took place in Khari village under Haldaur police station area.
According to police, the 28-year-old accused Qamrunissa’s first husband Mohd Hanif was a paralytic patient. Three years ago, she secretly married her lover Zahid Ahmed, 30. When the victim, Zarina Khatun, got a whiff of it, she revealed the secret to all the relatives.
Upset over this, Qamrunissa and Zahid, both from Haldaur town, reached Khatun’s house on July 11 and strangled her to death. Zarina was a widow and is survived by three sons who work in Delhi.
The incident came to fore when one of her sons, Mohammad Yunush, made several calls to her but did not get any response. He later requested her neighbours to check up on her who later told him about a strong stench emanating from his house which was locked from outside. He immediately rushed back home and broke the door open to find Khatun’s body lying on a cot. He informed the cops who sent the body to the district hospital for autopsy.
Bijnor superintendent of police, Neeraj Kumar Jadaun, formed two teams to investigate the case.
“Qamrunissa and her lover Jahid were arrested and sent to jail. Both the accused confessed to the crime. Police have recovered Zarina’s mobile phone, house keys and scarf used in the crime,” the SP said.
