A 22-year-old newly married woman was allegedly murdered by her husband and her sister in southwest Delhi. Pooja had been married to Rahul Solanki (23) for one-and-a-half months when she discovered that her husband was having an affair with her sister Rinky (20), said a senior police officer.
When Pooja objected over the relationship, Rinky and Rahul allegedly hatched a plan to eliminate her so that they can get married, the officer said.
The duo yesterday strangulated Pooja with her dupatta at their home in Palam, he said. She was rushed to a hospital in an unconscious state where she was declared brought dead. A case was registered at Palam Village police station in the matter, he said.
Rinky and Rahul were arrested on Thursday after investigation and questioning of family members, the officer said.
