An investigation into a murder case in Gwalior has become talk of the town. A woman allegedly killed her husband and plotted it as a suicide, following which she kept on misleading the police team for 28 days.
The woman, identified as Mamata, allegedly killed her husband, Parshuram, on June 2 in Ramji Ka Pura of Bahodapur area in Gwalior city. However, she told the police that her husband died by suicide. Police officials initially believed her story but after the post-mortem report it came to light that the accused woman planned the murder of her husband after watching an episode of the popular crime show ‘Crime Patrol’.
The wife of the deceased was misleading the police investigation for nearly a month by pretending to be shocked after the death of her husband. Initially, Mamata said that her husband hanged himself to death but in the post-mortem report it came out that the husband died due to brain haemorrhage.
Parshuram died on the night of June 2. When the police reached the spot, his body was lying on a bed and there was a noose around his neck. There were injury marks on his body. On this, Mamata told police that she brought down her husband’s body hanging on the noose, and hence there were marks on the body.
The police initially believed the alibi of Mamata but took her into custody and interrogated her after the post-mortem report came out.
In the police interrogation, Mamata said that her husband used to beat her after consuming alcohol and it was affecting her son too. On June 2 also, Parashuram again assaulted her. After this, Mamata decided to kill Parashuram and sent her 13-year-old son to the market on the pretext of bringing a mobile charger.
Mamata beat Parashuram to death with a stick. Then as she had watched in an episode of ‘Crime Patrol’, she plotted the murder as suicide. Then, she put a noose around Parashuram’s neck and placed his body on the bed.
