'Dead' woman resurfaces; 'killer' husband languishing in jail

india Updated: Dec 23, 2013 19:31 IST

A "dead" woman was found to be living with her boyfriend, now her husband, in Varanasi while the first husband is languishing in jail for "murdering" her, police said on Monday.

Police said five other people arrested in connection with the murder are out on bail.

The woman, Pinki, was produced Monday in a court in Giridih, 300 km from state capital Ranchi.

In 2010, Pinki's first marriage was solemnised with Arun Kumar.

On June 20, 2011, Pinki and Arun were headed to Bilaspur when she went missing. It later came to light that she eloped with her boyfriend, Nitesh Ram, and tied the knot.

Pinki's parents had lodged an FIR against Arun, alleging that she was killed by her in-laws. Six people, including Arun, were jailed.

Arun's family members found Pinki leading a married life with her second husband and a two-and-a-half-year child from the first marriage, in Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. They then informed the police and she was arrested.
