A fight between a man and a wife over owner ship of a property ended in a tragedy where he strangled her to death. The man has been arrested by the crime branch and an FIR was registered at Isanpur police station.
Accused Karum Sheikh (45) and his wife Merinabibi are both from West Bengal and this was the second marriage for both, police said.
The two had been having frequent fights for the last few months over ownership of a property in Kolkata which is registered in Merinabibi’s name.
A few days ago, the couple shifted to a rented accommodation near Chandola Lake where they again had a quarrel. In a fit of rage, Sheikh allegedly strangled her and killed her. Later, he collected her ornaments and mobile phone and fled. A team of Ahmedabad crime branch arrested him on Sunday after an FIR was registered against him.
