Wife kills teen over alleged affair with husband; Minor was victim of sexual assault: police

A woman in the Indian state of Maharashtra is accused of killing a 16-year-old girl who allegedly had a “physical relationship” with her husband, authorities said.

The attacker called the teenage victim to a secluded location in Mahul village in Mumbai to take a confession under Section 164 of India’s Code of Criminal Procedure, the Times of India reported, citing an unnamed police officer.

There, the woman and a friend are said to have strangled the minor. They then tied the victim’s hands and legs, put her body in a sack and disposed of it, authorities said.

Police in Nehru Nagar village found the sack containing the deceased teenager in a river bed near Buntar Bhavan in Kurla on Tuesday.

The authorities registered a first murder report against unknown persons and initiated investigations after the discovery.

After examining the surveillance footage, police eventually found images of an auto rickshaw stopping near the riverbed and a person throwing something into it.

They were then able to identify the vehicle’s registration and locate the driver, who helped them on the case by revealing information about the women who hired him.

The police arrested the woman and her friend on Thursday.

“The two initially denied any involvement, but when they were questioned separately, the truth emerged,” an official said.

The woman was upset because the victim, a Quresh Nagar resident, was allegedly in a “physical relationship” with her husband, according to police.

Authorities are still looking for three other accomplices who are said to have aided and abetted the woman.

They face charges of violating Section 201 of India’s Penal Code for destroying evidence, Chief Inspector Chandrashekar Bhabal said.

About six months before her death, the deceased minor filed a sexual assault complaint against a 51-year-old man, authorities found.

The police arrested the man under the Child Protection Against Sexual Offenses Act.

It was unclear if the arrested man and the women accused of killing the teenager were related.

In a related story, a security guard in Telangana state, India, murdered his wife nearly a week ago because the victim was having an affair with his brother, authorities claimed.
