The police on Saturday arrested the wife and relatives of Dr Shafatullah Khan, who was murdered in his home on Tuesday night.

Khan’s wife Ayesha, 45, had allegedly put out a contract for bobbitising her 55-year-old husband because of Khan’s ways. She was helped by her niece Nandini, 30, and Nandini’s husband Pawan Vishwakarma, 35.

Pawan later told the two men who took the contract to kill Khan instead.

Jabalpur SP Shashikant Shukla said Khan had 12 stab wounds on his chest, and his throat and wrists had been slit.

Shukla said initially, it appeared to be a case of loot as the killers had taken away cash and jewellery from the house after locking Ayesha, her daughter and grandson in the bathroom.

However, during questioning, they found discrepancies in answers given by Nandini who later revealed the conspiracy.

According to Shukla, Ayesha married Khan in 1991, but he established relationships with several other women thereafter.

He used to lure young girls by promising them jobs as nurses and then allegedly raped them. He allegedly raped Nandini when she was 11-year- old which resulted in her getting pregnant said Ayesha.

Ayesha claimed that the matter was hushed up. “Things had reached my family and I had to act,” Ayesha told the police.

Pawan, then hired the two men — Rajendra Malviya and Dheeraj — for the job.

They arrived in Jabalpur on June 12 where Ayesha gave them ?10,000 each to bobbitise Khan but Pawan decided that it would be better to kill him.

Police have arrested Ayesha, Nandini, and Rajendra while Pawan and Dheeraj are absconding.
