DU Professor arrested: 38-year-old assistant professor working at a prominent Delhi University college was arrested on 11 November for getting his wife killed. Besides the professor, his nephew Govind has also been arrested as he helped his uncle carry out the whole operation.
He was quite upset with Pinky because he knew that his uncle wasn’t happy with his marriage with her. He felt that his uncle had been cheated and wanted to help him in getting rid of her.
The couple had tied the marital knot nine months ago. Their marriage was, however, going through a difficult time. The professor confessed to the cops that his wife wasn’t speaking to anyone and was angry over the constant fights that the couple was having. He was also miffed with her because a cheque of Rs 5 lakh that his in-laws had given him as a wedding gift had bounced. He felt cheated, as per a report.
His ex-driver was also arrested after confessing that he was the one who strangled Pinki and electrocuted her.
Pinky’s brother was shattered by the news. He told a publication that she had fulfilled all the demands made by the accused. In fact, on the day of her murder, Pinky had informed her brother that he was behaving suspiciously. He also tried calling her but she didn’t take his call. She had also once told them that if she doesn’t take their call, they should understand that something has happened to her.
The woman was sleeping on her bed when the driver and the nephew entered the house and killed her. They left home quietly from another door.
