Wife kills husband, hides body in bed box

A wife in the Indian state of Haryana murdered her husband and kept his body stuffed in a box bed for a week before disposing it off in a nearby drain.

The incident occurred on the intervening night of January 11-12 in the city of Faridabad. The accused, along with four other accomplices, allegedly beat the victim, Dinesh with a stick and then strangled him to death, reports said. The body was then stuffed in a box bed inside his home to avoid detection.

Once the body started to smell after a week, the accused disposed it of in an open public drain. The body was found on January 28.

His wife, who had initially failed to identify her husband’s body, eventually cracked under police investigation and confessed to the crime after a friend of the victim identified the body. She was later arrested while four of her accomplices remain absconding.

Reports also suggest that the murder was committed because the woman saw her husband as an obstacle to her relationship with one of the accomplices.
