The Mum­bai ses­sions court re­cently sen­tenced a 32-year-old man and his par­ents to life im­pris­on­ment for killing his wife four years ago. The Kalam­boli po­lice re­ceived the or­der on Wed­nes­day.

The po­lice ar­rested Su­mitku­mar Ya­dav, his fa­ther Akhilesh, 66, and mother Su­nita, 58, in April 2012 af­ter they al­legedly stran­gled Su­mit’s wife, Madhu to death. They were booked un­der sec­tions 302, 304b, 498 and 34 of the In­dian Pe­nal Code (IPC).

Su­mit and Madhu tied the knot in early 2011, but they did not have a smooth mar­ried life.

“Su­mit and his par­ents sus­pected that the Madhu had an ex­tra­mar­i­tal af­fair with some­one from the neighbourhood. They were also un­happy as Madhu’s par­ents had not ar­ranged the wed­ding ac­cord­ing to their wishes,” said PR Po­pede, se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor of Kalam­boli po­lice sta­tion.

The ac­cused had also asked for an ex­pen­sive car from her par­ents. When her par­ents did not give a pos­i­tive an­swer, they started tor­tur­ing her phys­i­cally and men­tally. On April 17, 2012, they stran­gled her to death fol­low­ing a quar­rel.

“Our of­fi­cer metic­u­lously col­lected all the ev­i­dences of the crime and sub­mit­ted them to the court. The court has sen­tenced all three of them to life im­pris­on­ment. The ac­cused can move the Bom­bay high court,” Po­pede said.
