Police on Saturday claimed to have solved the mystery behind recovery of a half-burnt body at Golana village in Khanpur region on January 25.

The body was identified as that of Badam Bai (28), a resident of Borkheri village in Bhalta police station area of Jhalawar district, said Mahendra Kumar Maru, the station house officer of Khanpur police station.

She was allegedly stabbed more than three dozen times by her husband Mansingh Erwal (30) to death on January 20.

According to the police, Erwal and his wife used to quarrel over her frequent visits to her parents’ house. On January 20, the accused took Bai to Bengali Baba fair in the Khanpur region. While returning from the fair, Mansingh first pushed his wife on the road and then attacked her with a sharp-edged weapon on her chest more than three dozen times to death, Maru said. He poured petrol on the body and set it on fire to hide her identity, said the SHO, adding that the accused then reached his house and went to sleep.

The victim’s parents accused Erwal of often beating up their daughter. During investigation, Erwal admitted to killing his wife, said Maru, adding that the accused was arrested.
