New Delhi: A 37-year-old woman went to a police station to file a missing report about her husband but landed in police net for allegedly murdering him with her 23-year-old lover.

Manju Joshi, her lover Lekhraj and a Deepak Sharma (27) were arrested for their alleged involvement in the murder of her husband Dinesh Kumar Joshi, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer) Chhaya Sharma.

“Manju was annoyed with her husband as he was a habitual drunkard and used to beat her and other family members. His habit ruined the family. He had sold his flat and other household articles,” Sharma said. Meanwhile, she became close to her landlord’s son Lekhraj who helped her financially.

On June 16, Manju left her husband in a drunken condition with Lekhraj, who along with his friend Deepak took him to a vacant plot in Rohini Sector 23 and allegedly murdered him with blades and smashed his face with a stone.

During investigations, official said, it came to light that Dinesh and Lekhraj had a fight in the first week of May due to the youth’s relationship with his wife. After this, Dinesh started living with his sisters.

On June 15, Dinesh and his wife visited his sister’s house and returned home the next day. Four days later, Manju called Dinesh’s sister and told her that he had left them at Sector-5, Rohini on June 16 and hadn’t turned up since.

“Seema told her to wait for sometime as Dinesh used to often leave home without informing anyone in the family for several days. When he did not come return July 12, they went to Vijay Vihar police station to lodge a missing persons’ report. There they saw a photo on a notice board and identified it as being Dinesh,” Sharma said. It also came to light that Manju was initially not interested in lodging the report.

“Her children were questioned and they revealed that their father was last seen with Lekhraj. The woman and Lekhraj were questioned and they confessed to the crime,” Sharma said.
