The Malwani police on Saturday arrested a woman for allegedly killing her husband. The woman’s alleged boyfriend,her son and an alleged boyfriend of the victim’s mother have also been arrested in connection with the murder.

The victim,identified as Naresh Narayan Bhoir (45),who was suffering from leprosy,had gone missing since January 21. Bhoir’s sister Sangeeta Acharya had filed a missing person’s complaint after her mother told her Bhoir had taken Rs 50 from her and had not returned.“Ganga,Bhoir’s mother,had apparently had nightmares for the past three days that Bhoir was strangling her.

While narrating this to her daughter,she said Bhoir had gone missing,” said Jaywant Hargude,Assistant Commissioner of Police (Malwani division). The police said when Sangeeta was talking to her mother,the latter’s boyfriend,who was in an inebriated condition,told them Bhoir had been killed by his wife and son. Sangeeta then approached the Malwani police and filed a complaint against her sister-in-law and nephew. The police,on Friday,detained Bhoir’s wife,who later reportedly confessed.The police said Bhoir’s wife Lakshmi (35),son Pritam (21) and Lakshmi’s alleged boyfriend Salim Bulami (23) had poisoned him on January 21. With the help of her mother-in-law’s boyfriend Gajanan Yeru (58),they hired a boat and allegedly took Bhoir’s body in a gunny bag to Madh Island. After tying a rock to the bag,they threw the body into a creek,said the police. The four accused will be produced before a court on Sunday.
