New Delhi: A 23-year-old man allegedly strangled his 22-year-old wife to death, suspecting her of cheating on him, in front of their 2-year-old daughter in Central Delhi’s Kamla Market area, the police said on Sunday.

The accused husband, Kamil, walked into the Kamla Market police station in the early hours of Sunday and confessed to the murder, police said.

 

The accused told the police that the body was lying inside their second floor flat in Kamla Market area.

The police found his wife Reshma’s body, which had already turned blue, a senior police officer said. He added that the murder might have taken place on Friday.

“It was learnt he had killed her on Friday and kept sitting with the body on Saturday as he was in a state of confusion on whether to dump it somewhere or confess to his crime,” he said.

Kamil told the police that he was in an inebriated state and had a quarrel with Reshma on Friday over her friendship with two men, the officer said.

He admitted that he beat her up and strangled her later.

 

The couple were married for three years and Kamil worked as a peon at the Ambedkar University, police said.
