Uran police arrested three persons for allegedly murdering a 34-year-old woman and destroying the evidence last week. The husband of the deceased woman was among those arrested.

Police said that the deceased woman was identified as Vijaya Katkari and she remarried Samadhan around 4 years ago after her first husband passed away. However, recently, her husband Samadhan came to know that she was in a relationship with another person.
