Man held for ‘murdering’ wife
GK CITY CORRESPONDENT
Srinagar, Oct 3: Police has arrested a man accused of murdering his wife in Tengpora area of south City.
The police said the accused, Manzoor Ahmed Mir, a constable with the Jammu and Kashmir police was arrested from his residence while a case of murder has been filed.
“Prima facie reveals that it’s a murder case,” Superintendent of Police south City, Muhammad Irshad told Greater Kashmir while confirming the arrest.
Pertinently, the victim Rukhsana Jabeen was found dead at her parental home on October 30. She had been living with her parents for the past around a year following an alleged dispute with her husband. She was married three years go.
Jabeen’s family said her being childless was a ‘main cause of discord’ with Mir.
“He (Mir) would often beat her ruthlessly and finally she returned to her parental home,” the family alleged.
They said a few days prior to the death, two of Mir’s colleague allegedly from police visited the family asking them to go for divorce.
“The duo told us that Mir wasn’t willing to continue with the relation. And October 3 was set the date for final decision into the matter,” the family said.
But before that Jabeen was found dead in her room.
Her family said the body bore “visible marks of strangulation on the neck.” “She was presumably strangulated by using some wire. This is what the police told us,” they said.
Rubbishing any chance of suicide, the family said, Jabeen was contended and stable minded.
“She talked to us normally till all of us went for sleep,” they said.
The family got to know about the murder in the morning when Ruksana’s mobile was ringing, but she didn’t pick it.
Meanwhile, the accused has been detained at Police Station Shergarhi.
