A 36-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly killing his sister-in-law and hiding her body inside a bedbox at her residence in southwest Delhi’s Bindapur, said police.
The accused, identified as Ghanshyam, allegedly killed his sister-in-law Dimple as he was annoyed about her closeness to his wife and daughter, said police. The accused, who worked as an autorickshaw driver, was worried that Dimple was a bad influence on his family members, they said.
During questioning, Ghanshyam allegedly told police that he was annoyed by the frequent visits Dimple made to his residence to meet his wife and daughter.
He admitted that he had killed her to save his family from “Dimple’s influence”.
Ghanshyam allegedly strangled Dimple with a wire and then hid her body inside the bedbox of her room last Saturday, said police sources.
Dimple was separated from her husband and lived alone in Bindapur. Her 8-year-old daughter lived with a relative in Jalaun, said police.
