Kundara (Kollam): A woman who was staying with her mother and sister after separating from her husband has been found dead in her house. The deceased has been identified as Radhika (52) of Sheeba Bhavan, Perayam. Kundara police arrested Lal Kumar (48) the husband of Radhika’s sister concerning the case. He was present in the house during her death, police say.
According to the police, Radhika was in a relationship with Mulavana resident Praveen (32). Her family was against this relationship as there was an age difference. Last Saturday, Radhika’s sister saw Praveen and Radhika talking in front of their house. A dispute arose between the three and Praveen hit the sister. The next day, Radhika and Praveen got married from a temple.
Meanwhile, Radhika’s sister had booked a complaint against Praveen for hitting her. On Monday, police nabbed Praveen and remanded him. Radhika demanded the sister and husband to vacate the house as it was under her ownership. This fumed several bickerings in the house.
During Radhika’s death, only her sister’s husband was present at the house. Her mother and sister had been off the house. When they returned Radhika was found dead. She was reportedly strangled to death using a shawl.
