Gurugram man strangles pregnant wife, booked

Our Correspondent

Gurugram, August 31

A man allegedly strangled his eight-month pregnant wife in a Nathupur village slum near DLF Phase 3.

The victim has been identified as Nikki Kumari (18), who was staying with her husband Roshan, a labourer, in a slum of Nathupur village.

To mislead the police, Roshan claimed that Nikki was bitten by some insect following which she died, but the postmortem report revealed that she died of strangulation. The police have registered a murder case against Roshan, who is absconding.

Preliminary probe revealed that a fight broke out between the couple on Saturday night following which Roshan angrily strangled Nikki. To evade police action, Roshan made an excuse that his wife was bitten by some insect and took her to a hospital, where doctors declared her brought dead.

However, doctors found strangulation marks on the victim's neck and they informed the police.

Soon, the police reached the hospital and took the body in custody. It was on Sunday when the postmortem report revealed that the woman was strangled to death, the police registered an FIR on Monday.

"The accused is absconding, but we are conducting raids and he will be nabbed soon," said Inspector Jaiveer Dhul, SHO of DLF Phase 3 police station.
