Gurgaon session court awards life sentence to husband for killing wife
The Gurgaon session court sentenced a 29-year-old Rajesh to life imprisonment for killing his wife in August 2013. He is a car mechanic and resident of Sohna road. He killed his wife, Jyoti after doubting her fidelity.
On circumstantial evidence, the sessions judge Harnam Singh convicted him for killing his wife. The case was registered by victim's father Baljit after which the investigations gradually began to shape up.

The unfortunate incident is said to have taken place on 7th August, where the husband decided to strangulate his wife suspecting of an illicit relationship, and fled away.

A day later, he himself got admitted in the hospital with fake claims stating that he was brought to the hospital by a stranger who found him unconscious in the road. But, his all claims fell apart when hospital CCTV footage divulged that it was his brother who admitted him in a hospital and his bruises were self-caused.

Two witnesses of the case even said that it was a case of suicide and referred Rajesh as innocent.

The session court judge accused Rajesh not only for killing his innocent wife but also for absconding from the crime scene. The judge said, "The accused had been doubting the character of his wife and had adequate motive to eliminate her. He failed to furnish any explanation as under what circumstances his wife was found dead. Moreover he absconded after the murder which suggests that he is guilty of the offence," as reported by TOI.

Meanwhile, the public prosecutor, Anurag Hooda, tried to evade all possibilities of proving Rajesh guilty and argued that he murdered his wife after suspecting her of cheating on him. It was her post-mortem report, which revealed that she had been strangled.
