During interrogation, the accused told police that he suspected Kalawati of having illicit relationships with men in the locality. “He told us that when her husband would leave home for work, she would meet other men in the locality. When she continued with the meetings, he decided to kill her and on Friday evening, he tried convincing her to accompany him to Prahlad Vihar. Once she agreed, he took her near some bushes and killed her,” said a police officer.
