NEW DELHI: A 32-year-old man reportedly killed his wife on Holi in their Taimoor Nagar house in southeast Delhi and tried to show that she had committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling fan. However, the accused, Kapil Sharma, was arrested after the autopsy report proved that she had been smothered to death.
Sharma, a male nurse, smothered his wife Parvati (27) and then took the body to a hospital telling the staff that she had committed suicide.
"When doctors found several injury marks on the body they got suspicious. They called up the New Friend's Colony police station and sent the body for postmortem. After the autopsy report confirmed murder, Sharma was arrested on Saturday," said a senior police officer.
Police have also found that Sharma was jailed for seven years in 2004 for his first wife's suicide. His first wife immolated herself 12 years ago after repeated dowry demands. A probe has also been initiated to see if the first suicide was a murder as well.
A probe by inspector Kuldeep Singh under the supervision of ACP Anil Yadav further trashed the suicide theory as the dust on the ceiling fan, from which the man claimed that his wife had hanged herself, had been untouched for long. Also, there was no chair or stool in the room on which the woman could have climbed to tie herself to the fan.
检查员 Kuldeep Sing的调查进一步驳斥了自杀一说。天花风扇上的灰尘很久没有被碰过。而且屋子里也没有让受害者爬上去上吊的椅子或凳子。
Reports suggest that Parvati had suffered three miscarriages. The couple used to often quarrel, which turned violent at times. "Sharma may have smothered his wife after a similar quarrel on Holi," said a police officer.
Today, women in our India should get educated, work and become financially independent before getting married. There should be some social, self help groups, who keep tabs on their lives and provide counselor help in case of distress.
Corrupt quit India
The only problem is that women do not share theit problems with their neighbours and their relatives. If that is done then the problem can be reduced.
If shared they will take advantage : Do not trust Ur Neighbour !!!!!
Very true. Its better to remain unmarried rather than marrying people with criminal mindset!!
Women have to become more strong and financially independent!
A Criminal always remains a criminal. Why did she marry him at all!!
Had that domestic violence been reported in time, a life could have been saved. Still women are insecure in India.

IPC 498A , Domestic violence act, Dowry prohibition act, Divorce act Maintenance act , etc are made to protect women , Is there any problem with is act, Why these act are not proving to decrease problems of woman or crime in this connection
If you not love your wife, why killing. Simply take divorce... Stupid people.
