A man, who dozed off as he waited under a bed for the man he suspected had an affair with his wife, allegedly killed him after finding them together in bed when he woke up.
Raju Sharma, 30, who works at a sweet shop in Munirka, then stuffed the corpse in a gunny bag and dumped it in a drain.
The police found the bag on Sunday, nearly a week after the murder on December 5 in Badarpur.
Sharma suspected his wife, Gudiya, of being in a relationship with Girish Tiwari, one of their former neighbours. Keen to confirm the doubt, he came home early on December 5, the police said.
He couched below the bed on which couple slept, waiting for Tiwari, the police said. “But as he waited, he went off to sleep. When he woke up at 10 p.m., he saw both Tiwari and Gudiya together in bed. An angry Sharma strangled Tiwari with his wife’s dupatta,” said Anil Shukla, deputy commissioner of police, south.
He then kept the body for a day in his house, stuffed it in a gunny bag and threw it in a nearby drain.
