Sanjay was arrested on April 15 and has confessed to the crime, according to senior police officials aware of the investigation.

Deputy commissioner of police Ankit Singh did not respond to repeated calls and texts.

The murder took place early on Saturday, hours after Sanjay had arrived at her house on Friday. The victim was found lying next to the flight of stairs on Saturday morning by her neighbours and rushed to a hospital, where she was declared brought dead.

On Friday around midnight, police officers cited above said, Sanjay came to the victim’s house and they had an argument over the latter talking on the phone with “other men”. Sanjay told police officers that he suspected that she was involved in other relationships.

In the ensuing fight, Sanjay strangled the woman and then pushed her down a flight of stairs. The victim’s two children – aged 10 years and eight – were sleeping in a room upstairs, according to the first information report (FIR) filed in the case, a copy of which has been seen by HT.

The FIR also states that Sanjay then woke up the woman’s 10-year-old son, convincing the boy that his mother tripped down the steps and died. Police said Sanjay took the child to see his mother’s body and then made the child clean the blood.

The boy, the FIR states, was “scared” and believed Sanjay, whom he called “uncle”.

“The 10-year-old cleaned the blood near the body and then threw the blood-soaked washcloth in the dustbin,” according to the FIR.

Doctors who examined the victim’s body saw multiple marks on her head and neck and informed the police, despite claims by Sanjay that the incident was an accident.

Police said the body was then sent for an autopsy and in the meantime, a team was sent to the victim’s home.

“We found broken bangles, victim’s slippers and other items. Our investigation revealed that someone cleaned the blood from the crime scene. A blood-stained cloth was recovered from the dustbin. Neighbours, tenants and other locals also said that Sanjay often comes to the woman’s house to meet her,” said an investigator.

The post-mortem report revealed that the woman had “strangulation/ligature marks” on her neck which caused her death.

A police team was rushed to the woman’s home and Sanjay, who was still staying there, was arrested. He confessed to the murder when quizzed by investigating officers.

“On the night of the incident, he said he went to the woman’s house and found her talking on the phone with someone else. When he asked her about her friends, she didn’t give him any answer and told him to mind his business. Sanjay also said that he was dating the woman for four years as her husband usually stays out of town for work…” reads the FIR.

Police said during the argument, he strangled the woman till she died, then he pushed her body down a flight of steps in her house to make it look like an accident.

Police said the 10-year-old will be counselled and then questioned to ascertain the sequence of events.
