PANCHKULA: Six days after Karnal resident Islam was found dead near a Palasra village resort in this district’s Morni block, the alleged lover of his wife was arrested here on Saturday based on her interrogation.
Jaswinder Singh ‘Patta’(32) is co-accused with Shama Parveen ‘Bhuri’ (27), the alleged unfaithful wife, in this crime that came to light on January 6. First the woman was called to the Chandimandir police station for questioning, and when the cops got suspicious about her involvement in the murder, they grilled her further and claim to have gathered how she killed her man with the help of her paramour.
Charged with being party to stoning her husband to death, Shama has claimed that he used to torture her to force her into prostitution. Islam lived with her and their two children in Naraingarh, Haryana, where he worked as a daily wager. After Jaswinder’s arrest, Panchkula
assistant commissioner of police (ACP) Om Prakash said: "He is the main accused. Shama told us that Islam had moved from Karnal to Naraingarh with his brother’s family in search of work, and when he had failed to find any other job except casual labour, he had taken to alcohol and beating up his wife. This thrashing, she said, had become a daily affair, even though she tried to convince him that everything would be fine."

She told police that Islam used to send her to various hotels for flesh trade despite her resistance. Whenever she refused, he would torture her physically. Fed up with his violent behaviour, she confided in Jaswinder and they hatched a conspiracy to kill Islam, say police. The man was killed with a brick. Police claim to have gathered from Shama that she, along with Jaswinder, had first reached the resort before they had called her husband over there on some pretext. When Islam reached there, they hit him on the head with a brick picked up from the spot.
Before the woman’s reported confession, the police were also trying to apply enmity theory to the murder investigation, although they tried to test the woman first.
