Professor surrenders after killing wife2 min read
Patna: A college professor in Bihar brutally killed his younger wife and then rushed to the nearby police station to surrender himself to the police. The accused suspected his wife had an illicit relationship with another man. The victim was his second wife whom he had married two years ago after his first wife died.
The incident took place at Indira Nagar locality under Paliganj police station in Patna district late Monday evening. The professor who was employed at local Paras Nath Kushwaha College had been teaching mathematics.
In his statement to the police, the accused Sunil Kumar Singh (52) said that when he reached home in the evening after college’s teaching works, he found his wife Jhunni Devi (25) talking over the mobile phone and asked who had given this cell phone but her reply failed to satisfy him. He suspected she had an illicit relation with another man and in a fit of rage, strangulated his wife.
Soon after committing the crime, the professor rushed to the nearby Paliganj police station and urged the cops to arrest him saying he had murdered his “unfaithful” wife.
“Sir, I am a culprit. Please arrest me. I have murdered my wife. Her body is lying on the roof of my house. Please go and recover (it),” the local police inspector Subodh Kumar quoted the professor as having told them.
“I have killed her in a fit of fury but I am unrepentant of my act. I can’t tolerate my wife having illicit relations with someone,” the accused told the stunned police. He was instantly taken into custody and after completing basic legal formalities, sent to jail.
Reports said the accused professor had regular quarrels with his wife as he suspected she was in love with someone else. His suspicion deepened after he found his wife in the possession of a sleek smart phone.
