Rly employee held for killing wife
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.
