Delhi Police have arrested a 25-year-old man for murdering his wife in Malviya Nagar. The accused, Subhash Kumar, had fled to Jharkhand after killing his wife and was apprehended from Gurgaon where he was working as a suprevisor in a construction company.

According to the police, Kumar murdered his wife Mumpy on April 23 at their rented accommodation in Malavya Nagar following an argument over dowry. "The couple had been living there for 10 days before the incident. The owner provided police with a tenant verification form filled by Kumar. This form was yet to be deposited with the local police for verification. Using the information provided in the form, parents of the deceased were contacted," Chhaya Sharma, DCP (south) said.

Mumpy's parents told police that the couple had got married three years ago without their approval. During investigation, it was learnt that Kumar had left for a naxalite area of Bihar and Jharkhand. Subhash came in contact with Mumpy's father Didar Mandal and started visiting his house in Chirag Delhi where he met her. He became familiar with Mumpy and concluded that the girl's financial position was better than his.

"He planned to marry Mumpy so that his economic condition could improve, but her family was against this marriage as they were not sure about him. Later, Kumar convinced Mumpy and finally he married her," Sharma added. Soon after, he began harassing Mumpy and her family for not giving him dowry and when his demands were not fulfilled, he started assaulting his wife.
