According to police, the man suspected his wife, Rekha, of having an extramarital relationship. On Monday, they had an argument in their house, which is in a chawl. He tied her hands with a rope, two towels and a shawl and slit her throat with a knife. The neighbours found Rekha lying in a pool of blood. The Khadakpada police registered a case of murder.
