New Delhi:

A 28-year-woman has been arrested along with a man for allegedly killing her husband, police said on Wednesday.

The woman hired the man to murder her husband, they said, adding that they also tried to mislead investigators by making the killing look like an outcome of an attempted robbery.

Chander Kala had conspired with Jumman (27), a criminal based in Delhi’s Ranhola area, and also given him a hammer and Rs 1.5 lakh for the job, police said.

The weapon and Rs 50,000 have been recovered, police said.

The woman and her husband used to fight very often. The man had two wives and this was also the reason behind the dispute between the two, police said.

The woman alleged that her husband was a philanderer and had extra-marital affairs, police said.

According to the plan, the killing was executed on May 18 when the woman’s husband was asleep, police said.

Kala called Jumman and kept the main gate of her house open for him to enter easily. Jumman came to her house at night with the hammer and hit on the man’s head twice killing him instantly, police said.

To make it look like a robbery and mislead the police, Kala gave money and jewellery to Jumman, officials said.

The police got a call from a man who informed them that a body was lying on road near his residence and a crowd had gathered around it, officials said.

“The man was found lying in a pool of blood. He was identified as Veer Bahadur Verma, a resident of Vikas Nagar in Delhi. The man, 50, was rushed to the DDU Hospital where he was declared brought dead,” said Sameer Sharma, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer Delhi).

A case under sections 302 (murder), 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code was registered, he said.

When the man’s wife was interrogated, she kept on changing her versions about the sequence of events, and claimed that some robbers had entered into her house and looted money along with jewellery, after brutally assaulting her husband, police said.

The police began to suspect Kala as her statements pertaining to the ‘robbery’ were found inconsistent. Based on CCTV footage and Call Detail Records, Jumman was arrested.

During its analysis it was found that she was in touch with Jumman and had made several calls to him in the past few weeks. Kala eventually broke down and confessed to have plotted to kill her husband, the police said.

The woman claimed that before her marriage, she used to work at Verma’s garment shop where he allegedly molested her but due to her poor financial conditions, she couldn’t oppose him and got married to him despite being aware that the man was already married and had children too, the police added.

“Her husband used to often spend more time with her first wife and a few weeks ago, when Kala’s sister came to stay with them, he eyed her as well. She was aware about his extra marital affairs. Fed up of his habits, she decided to hire a killer and get her husband killed,” DCP Sharma added.
