Kanpur Businessman Arrested for Wife's Murder


Two days after a 28-year-old woman was found murdered, her businessman husband was arrested today after he confessed to have got her killed.

Piyush Shyam Dasani was arrested after he confessed to have got his wife, Jyothi, killed with the help of his driver as he was having relations with another woman, Inspector General of Police, Kanpur Zone, Ashutosh Pandey said.

While the driver is still absconding, the police has taken the woman into custody and is questioning her, he added.

Jyothi's body, with multiple stab wounds, was found inside Piyush's car on July 28 in Panki area of the district.

Piyush in his complaint lodged with the police after the incident had alleged that he and Jyothi were returning home from a restaurant on July 27 night when some motorcycle-borne youths tried to overtake their car.

A tussle broke out between him and the youths after one of the bikes hit the car, according to the complaint.

Piyush had then gone on to claim that he was beaten up by one of the youths after which they abducted Jyothi and also took the car along with them.

Piyush, who had claimed he was beaten up, did not have any injury marks on his body, police said, adding, he reported the matter to the police more than hour late when he could have made the call from the spot itself.

Police also could not find any marks of force on the victim's body. The car too was found without any damages on it putting the motive of the accused under suspicion.
