The Hill Line po­lice sta­tion in Am­ber­nath solved a case in­volv­ing the mur­der of a 32-year-old man within eight hours af­ter they found his body on Tues­day morn­ing. The po­lice have ar­rested his wife and her boyfriend, who killed him by slit­ting his throat, and threw his body 150 m away from their res­i­dence.

The po­lice said the de­ceased San­jay Ha­jravay, 32, a worker at a gold­smith’s work­shop, lived with his wife Anuba, 23, and their three-year-old son in Akruti chawl at Ne­vali vil­lage in Am­ber­nath.

On Tues­day, the Hill Line po­lice sta­tion was in­formed about a body found by lo­cals at an open place, at 150m from Ha­jravay’s house.

Ji­ten­dra Agarkar, po­lice in­spec­tor (crime), Hill Line po­lice sta­tion, first in­ter­ro­gated the neigh­bours. “With the help of the neigh­bours, and through lo­cal sources, we found that the wife was in a re­la­tion­ship with an­other man, and she had reg­u­lar quar­rels with her hus­band about the af­fair,” added Agarkar.

The po­lice de­tained Anuba and in­ter­ro­gated her.

“Anuba con­fessed to the crime, and said that she had been in a re­la­tion­ship with the ac­cused, Deep­akar Pa­tra, 32, for the past three years,” said Agarkar.

A few days ago, her hus­band came to know about their re­la­tion­ship, and they quar­relled fre­quently over the is­sue. Frus­trated by this, she planned his mur­der.

Inthe wee hours of Tues­day morn­ing, Pa­tra came to their house when Ha­jravay was sleep­ing. Pa­tra slit his throat with a sharp weapon and killed him. They threw the body in an open space near their res­i­dence

A case had been reg­is­tered at Hill Line po­lice sta­tion in Am­ber­nath un­der sec­tion 302 (pun­ish­ment for mur­der) and 201 (caus­ing dis­ap­pear­ance of ev­i­dence of of­fence, or giv­ing false in­for­ma­tion to screen of­fender) of the In­dian Pe­nal Code.

The two ac­cused were pro­duced in a lo­cal court on Wed­nes­day, and have been re­manded in po­lice cus­tody till Novem­ber 30.
