Expressing their shock towards the incident, neighbours said that they were clueless about the crime and got to know about it only when Singh told them that he had killed his wife and wanted to surrender to the cops.

The police got the information about the crime from the neighbours. The neighbours told the police that Bharat had choked his wife Sunita to death, Kumar said. He also said that the accused has admitted his crime and accepted that he killed his wife during an altercation over a family issue.

"On reaching there, we found the body at their home. The murder appears to have happened at least three days back. We have arrested the accused. He has told us during questioning that he killed his wife during an altercation over a family issue. We have informed the woman’s family members and sent the body for autopsy," NDTV quoted Kumar as saying.
