Palghar: A Virar housewife and her boyfriend were booked for allegedly strangulating her husband to death and dumping his body in the bushes, a police official said here on Wednesday.
Police inspector SB Mane of the Virar police station told PTI that her husband Rajesh N Chowdhari had opposed her affair with her boyfriend.
Allegedly, the housewife and her boyfriend hatched a conspiracy after which they strangulated the husband to death before 9 am on September 22, 2015, the police official said.
His body was found dumped in Kumbharpada, which is between between Virar station and Virar Phata, the police official said.
The police official said that the man and his wife used to frequently quarrel about her affair.
However, the woman lodged a missing complaint about her husband's 'disappearance' with the police in a bid to mislead it and conceal her crime, the police official said.
The housewife and her boyfriend have been booked under Section 302, Section 201, Section 109 and Section 120(B), read with Section 34 of the Indian Penal Code, though no arrests have been made so far, the police official said, adding that further investigations are on.
