A day after he attempted suicide after allegedly killing his wife, the Kalyan professor is still critical and has been put on ventilator.

While the police suspect Sanjay Teli strangled his wife to death over suspicion that she was having an affair, the police said they are awaiting her autopsy report.

P Yejre, officer from Kolshewadi police station, said, “Though we went to hospital today [Sunday], doctors have told us that Sanjay is critical and has been kept on life support. Once the doctors permit us, we’ll record his statement and take appropriate action against him. He killed his wife over suspicion that she was having an affair from past few months. The two often argued over this. So far, we have found nothing. We are now trying to ascertain what drove Sanjay to kill his wife.”

Sanjay allegedly killed his wife Vidhya on Saturday and attempted suicide at their Lokgram residence in Kalyan. While Vidhya worked at beauty parlour, Sanjay is a professor Ramniranjan Jhunjhunwala College of Arts, Science and Commerce college, Ghatkopar. The couple have two sons, who are college students. The couple was alone at home when the incident occurred.
