Cops suspect wife in death of worker
Two days after a 31-year-old man was found dead near Tirupattur, Kandili police, who are probing into the incident, have found that his wife was behind the murder plot.
The deceased man Raj Kumar, a worker in a cycle stand run by the Tirupattur local body, had two children with wife Kausalya (28).
A fellow worker at the cycle stand told police that Raj Kumar had an altercation with a man, later identified as Ramesh on Saturday, the same day he was killed. Ramesh subsequently went into hiding.
On inquiry, police found that Kausalya had an illicit relationship with Ramesh, which came to Raj Kumar’s knowledge. Raj Kumar then admonished both Ramesh and his wife. Angered over this, Kausalya instigated Ramesh to kill her husband. Ramesh picked up a quarrel with Raj Kumar when the latter was on his way home after work and strangled him to death.
Police are on the lookout for Ramesh, even as they continue to interrogate Kausalya.
