Thatipur town inspector Manish Dhakad said, “Mohit Rajak confessed his crime and said he was getting late to work but Sadhna wanted him to accompany her to the temple. Mohit asked for tea but Sadhna delayed making it..”

The police officer said the quarrel, which started over a cup of tea, escalated to such an extent that Sadna’s family came over to try to pacify Mohit.

But the visit may have infuriated Mohit. “After they left, Mohit beat thrashed her and later strangled her to death with a piece of cloth,” said the police officer.

Sadhna’s family alleged that Mohit had been harassing her for dowry.
