Ujjain : The city police have arrested Rahul, the younger brother of Vijesh for assisting in the murder of Vijesh’s wife on Thursday. Army personnel Vijesh had murdered his wife Tina in cold blood.
The half rotten body which found in the Kshipra riverbed, inside a locked trunk near village Alampur Udana, on March 30 was identified after the DNA reports came out. The body inside the trunk was of a six-month pregnant woman, identified as Tina, wife of one Vijesh, resident of village Mukata, of Sanwer tehsil. Tina had been missing from her husband’s house for many days and her father Pirulal had lodged a missing complaint with Sanwer police on March 8. The husband, Vijesh is an army Jawan posted in Bhatinda.
The police claimed that the husband Vijesh, who suspected of Tina’s character, he also doubted that the child Tina was bearing was not his, so concocting a story of taking his wife with him to Jammu, he killed her and then hid the body inside a metal trunk and filled it with concrete and threw it in the river. However, the police are yet to get a statement from the husband Vijesh, who is posted in Bhatinda. CSP Vijay Davar said Rahul has confessed to have assisted Vijesh in destroying the body and then throwing it in the river.
