A youth in his early 30s entered the Baguiati police station on Monday and claimed that he had killed his wife, married 20 days ago at his rented house in Keshtopur last Saturday and that the body was still lying inside the flat locked from outside.
Cops took the man, Rony Saha, to the ground floor house at Keshtopur Rabindrapally, broke open the lock and found the body of Baby Poddar, 29, naked and wrapped in a blanket on the bed. Saha was immediately arrested and the body was sent for post mortem.
Police said, Saha, a cab driver, has confessed before the cops that he suspected the woman to be having an affair with someone and that drove him to kill her. “The man said that last Saturday, they had a fight after he had received some photographs of the woman with another man. In a fit of rage, the man had hit and suffocated her with blanket that killed her. He then fled and after wandering for two days, he decided to surrender himself,” said a senior officer of Bidhannagar Commissionerate.
