Police have arrested a woman and her lover for allegedly killing her husband whom she reported missing on February 15.
According to Mumbai Mirror, the 32-year-old man’s body was found in a jungle in Boisar, Palghar on February 16. The deceased has been identified as Anil Kumar Rawat (32). The accused woman, wife of the deceased has been identified as Mamta Rawat and Ramprakash Rawat the lover of the woman. Anil Kumar Rawat worked as a supervisor in a Palghar company and Ramprakash Rawat’s, who is a distant relative, was staying at his house in Shivajinagar, Boisar, for the past three months.
Mamta, on February 15, lodged a missing person complaint about her husband and claimed that her husband did not return home from work since February 13. Later, the next day, cops recovered a decomposed body with multiple wounds from a jungle near Boisar. The cops then scanned missing person’s records, which is when they established that the body was of Anil. The cops then informed his wife, who then identified the body and at that time cops registered a case under sections 302 (murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence or giving false information) and began investigations.
The cops treated the woman as a prime suspect. On Sunday, when cops visited the couple’s house they found blood stains. Even the distant relative Ramprakash had disappeared. During interrogation, the woman spilled the beans. Later, police arrested Ramprakash from Andheri. Anil had an argument with his wife (Mamta) on February 13 when he found about the affair. Ramprakash intervened the fight and, in a fit of rage, he hit Anil with a heavy object, leading to his death. Then, Mamta and Ramprakash got rid of the body and dumped it in the jungle.
