The New Indian Express - - CHENNAI -

FOUR days af­ter a 34-year-old rail­way em­ployee claimed that his wife killed her­self, the man was ar­rested on Thurs­day. Po­lice said the au­topsy re­port showed that the woman had been stran­gled us­ing a belt.

The de­ceased Kal­pana, 33, was mar­ried to one B Suresh of Gopala­pu­ram, Thiru-Vi-Ka Na­gar, af­ter they fell in love with each other. Suresh was work­ing as a grade-I tech­ni­cian in rail­ways. They have two sons.

On Tues­day Suresh had told his neigh­bours that Kal­pana fainted and with their help, he took her to a pri­vate hos­pi­tal where she was de­clared ‘dead on ar­rival’.

Later, dur­ing in­ter­ro­ga­tion Suresh is said to have told po­lice that Kal­pana had killed her­self since they had mis­un­der­stand­ings. “On in­ter­ro­ga­tion, Suresh spilled the beans,” said an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of­fi­cer.

For over a month there had been dis­putes in the fam­ily, since Kal­pana sus­pected Suresh of hav­ing an af­fair. On Tues­day, af­ter the boys left for school, fol­low­ing a quar­rel, Suresh had stran­gled her with the school belt of his son, po­lice said.
