“We interrogated Sonali. She confessed that she had asked her lover to kill Sachin as he would beat her,” said inspector Rohit Khot, Kherwadi police station.
“The man killed Sachin, then went to her house that same night to change his bloodstained clothes. He wore Sonali’s clothes and asked her for money. She did not have cash and so gave him her gold chain. He then fled,” he added.
