“They weren’t very well off economically. This led to a dispute in the house. During once such argument, Manmohan claimed that he lost his temper and strangled his wife. She was rushed to Artemis hospital and succumbed to injuries there,” a police officer said.
“He has been arrested and a case has been registered at Sushant Lok police station,” the officer said.
Police said Manmohan was present at the hospital when his wife was admitted. But he left to evade arrest. The hospital informed police about the case, post which a team of officers was posted at his house. “When he went home to get his bike and other valuables, the police team posted there apprehended him,” the officer said.
