A man has been reported to have hanged himself after allegedly killing a 19 year old woman on Tuesday night in Uttarakhand’s capital Dehradun in India.
The police reported that the man committed that act because he suspected that the woman was cheating on him.
The brother-in-law to the man informed the police of the incident about 8. 30pm on Tuesday.
“So far it seems that both of them were in a love relationship but since past few months there was some tension among them as he doubted her of cheating with another man,” Officer Arvind Kumar said.
Hindustantimes reports that the brother-in-law, who runs a restaurant in the city, had just shifted to the rented flat where the man often used to visit him. Kumar said the man and the woman were seen entering the flat on Tuesday evening as they inspected closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras.
“The two after entering the flat at 4pm, didn’t come out. Later in the night around 8.30, when the brother-in-law returned home, he rang the doorbell but to no response. He then called the man several times but he didn’t open the door. It was then, he called the police which after reaching the spot, broke open the door only to find then dead,” he added.
Kumar said they found the woman lying on the floor and the man hanging on a noose made out of wire tied to a ceiling fan.
“However, what was surprising was the fact that, there were no injury marks on the body of the woman due to which the police so far couldn’t ascertain the reason behind her death. Both the bodies have been sent for post-mortem examination in a city-based hospital. A case is yet to be registered and investigations are on,” he said.
