Mohit and Ruchi Sharma’s nine-year-old son had returned home from school on Thursday afternoon as usual. But the day held a rude shock in store for him. He got the first sign when he saw his maternal uncle waiting to pick him up. His uncle told him he couldn’t go back home.

Only that morning he had gone to school as always from his residence at Gaur Global Village apartments. By afternoon, his mother was dead. And evening came the news that his father was arrested for his mother’s “murder”.

Mohit and Ruchi married in 2003. Originally from Aligarh, they had moved to Delhi because of Mohit’s work, police said. Mohit is a software engineer while Ruchi was a housewife.

While Mohit kept claiming that Ruchi slipped in the bathroom and hit her head on the sink, police said they couldn’t discount the possibility of her being murdered.

“We have recovered a cricket bat, which is covered in blood and have sent it for forensic analysis,” a senior police officer said.

For police, the bat is a vital piece of evidence. For the nine-year-old, the bat used to be a “happy” part of his life that has changed forever. “His maternal uncle and aunt will look after him now,” a police officer said.

Police said they have questioned relatives who came from Aligarh, but are yet to find any evidence of an ongoing dispute or fight between the couple. “The relatives haven’t revealed anything,” a senior police officer said.
