India, Feb. 12 -- Two weeks after a 23-year-old man allegedly killed his 18-year-old wife, the police on Monday arrested him from Shankar Chowk in Udyog Vihar. The police said the man confessed to strangulating his wife with a dupatta (stole), after she went to sleep following a fight between the two.

According to the police, Dharmender, a daily wager, allegedly choked his wife to death on January 28 night and ran away after locking his rented house in Nathupur village, in DLF Phase-3, from the outside. Her decomposed body was recovered four days later on February 2, after their landlord, Dinesh, knocked at their door to arrange for cleaning. He picked up a foul smell and after discovering her body, reported the incident to the police. ...
