New Delhi: A 31-year-old surgeon hailing
from Jharkhand and working in a government hospital here was
arrested for allegedly murdering his engineer wife as she was
not on the same "wave length" as him, police said on Tuesday.
Chandra Vibhash, the surgeon working with Deen Dayal
Upadhyay Hospital, also allegedly took his 27-year-old wife
Supriya`s body in a bag to Allahabad in his car and threw it
near a bridge, V Renganathan, Additional Commissioner of
Police (West), said.
He was arrested after Supriya`s father told the police
that the surgeon had confessed to strangulating her.
"Vibhash told us that he strangled his wife as both the
husband and wife were not on the same wave length and there
was mental and physical incompatibility between them,"
Also hailing from Jharkhand, Supriya, who did her MBA
after BTech, got married to Vibhash in November last year and
had come to Delhi.
After two months of marriage, Renganathan said, Supriya`s
father told police that Vibhash started disliking his daughter
and torturing her. "After this, both the family members tried
to settle the matter amicably many times but he continued to
ill treat the deceased.
"Supriya kept on informing her mother about the torture
and ill treatment but ultimately she was forced by Vibash to
leave her matrimonial house. Finding no other way, she had to
come back to her parents’ house in July," Renganathan said.
However, due to persuasions and intervention of close
relatives, Vibhash brought Supriya back to Delhi but the
surgeon allegedly continued to beat her. In July itself,
Supriya`s parents came to Delhi in another bid to sort out
issues but the deceased`s ordeal did not end, he said.
According to the father, Supriya called her mother to
inform that her husband was so angry and she could be killed.
"Since then she could not be contacted as her mobile phone was
switched off. Later Vibhash was contacted but he allegedly
kept misguiding them by saying that he was in Mathura.
Last Sunday, the parents alongwith close relatives
reached Delhi but they found no one at the rented house of
Vibhash. Yesterday, they managed to meet Vibhash but he did
not disclose the whereabouts of Supriya.
"After continued requests, he broke down and confessed
that he has strangulated Supriya," Renganathan said.
Her parents alleged that whenever Supriya asked for money
for running the house, Vibhash used to taunt her and direct
her to get money from her parents.
"Supriya is post graduate and she has done B.Tech and
MBA. She made lot of adjustment even though her husband
misbehaved with her and ill treated her most of the time,"
Renganathan quoted the parents as saying.
