Twelve years after a man allegedly killed his wife and fled the city, Thane police nabbed the 42-year-old man in Karnataka on Friday.

Suresh Sanjeev Shetty, the accused, used to live in a slum in Majiwada, Thane.

The police said that on February 20, 2007, he killed his wife Meena Shetty, 30, after a fight.

“He burnt her body by pouring kerosene on her at his home and fled the city,” said a police officer from Kapurbawdi police station, Thane.

He had been absconding since then. Nitin Thakre, senior inspector, said, “The couple had frequent fights over the accused’s drinking habit. Acting on a tip-off, we caught him from Jayanagar in Bengaluru. He has been handed over to Kapurbawdi police.”

Shetty was charged under sections of the Indian Penal Code.
