A man was allegedly strangled to death by his wife’s lover in Shyamkunj Colony in Bhondsi on Saturday late night. The police said preliminary probe had revealed that the victim’s wife was in an extra-marital relationship with a man and had allegedly conspired with him to kill her husband.
The police said the victim, Dhani Ram, was found dead in a vacant plot near a school on Damdama Lake Road in Bhondsi.
