New Delhi: A man, who murdered his sister-in-law for having illicit relationship with his elder brother, has been arrested, Delhi police said today.
32-year-old Mohammad Khursheed had stabbed to death his sister-in-law Afsana Khatoon in Madhubani area of Bihar on April 25 and escaped to Nepal.
He was arrested yesterday when he returned from Nepal when he came to Delhi to meet his wife and children, Crime Branch of Delhi Police said.
