A 24-year-old man allegedly strangled his wife to death in front of their two-year-old daughter.

Police said the man then proceeded to sit with the body and with the child on his lap for more than 24 hours, before going to a police station to confess to the crime.

The man suspected that his wife was having an affair, police said.

Dowry

The suspect identified by the police by his first name Kamil, was arrested after he led the police to his house. The body of his 22-year-old wife, Reshma, was found on a mattress on the floor.

Reshma’s family members accused Kamil of allegedly torturing and killing his wife for dowry. Kamil was booked for murder and dowry death.

Police officials said that Kamil was carrying his daughter when he came to the police station to surrender.

Parents

The child was handed over to Kamil’s family after Reshma’s parents refused to accept her, police said.

Deputy commissioner of police Mandeep Singh Randhawa said Kamil came to the police station and informed an officer on duty he had murdered his wife.
