Police said that accused Arun's wife Umabai, 30, had left the house without informing on November 29.

Accused Arun got information about Uma's friendship with deceased Shubham Maratha and because of her friendship with Shubham, Uma did not want to go to her husband.
Infuriated over this, Arun stabbed Shubham and injured him. While undergoing treatment at a hospital in Mhow, he succumbed to his injuries.
Pithampur police established a case and started an investigation. The accused is said to have been absconding since the incident.
