“He then slept beside the body and came to the police station on Friday morning to confess to his crime and surrender,” the official informed.

He said Pawar was a borewell commission agent while Rathod was a nurse at Tuljapur, adding that the couple had married nine months ago and the deceased was five-month pregnant.
