Gujarat police has arrested a person for allegedly killing his wife few days back at Kalol in the neighbouring state.

Shyam Sunder Rathod, of Lohar Road in the city was arrested on Sunday for killing his wife Alka following a dispute at Kalol in Gujarat state, police said on Monday.

Alka left Rathod two years back following persisting disputes between them after their marriage in 1991 and was living alone in Kalol.

On March 3, Rathod reached Kalol and there he had beaten her mercilessly and later fled from the spot, police said.

Alka was admitted in Kalol in a serious condition from where she was referred to Ahmedabad for treatment, but she succumbed to her injuries.

Following a tip-off by the family members of Alka, police registered a case of murder against Rathod and later arrested him from Ratlam. He was taken to Kalol by the Gujarat Police for further action.
