GUWAHATI: In an incident of domestic violence in the city, one Kajalmoni Das was allegedly killed by her husband Debojit Das today. Villagers immediately vandalized the accused's house and beat him mercilessly.
Police and paramilitary forces rushed to the spot and rescued Debojit from the clutches of angry mob and then sent him to Gauhati Medical College hospital for treatment.
"This morning, Debojit informed the locals that she committed suicide by hanging inside the washroom. But villagers suspected that he killed her and then posed it as a suicide," a police official at Palashbari area said.
However, police are yet to receive an FIR in the case.
"Though there were allegations of cruelty by husband, none has registered a case yet. We have sent the body for postmortem," said the official adding that police may register a case by its own if the post mortem report suggests anything unnatural.
Sources said that there were several injury marks on her hands and neck. Some suspected that she might have been strangulated.
Debojit and Kajalmoni eloped some six months back and were living at his residence in the area since then. Locals alleged that the Debojit used to abuse her a lot asking for money.
