The Delhi Crime Branch probing the mysterious murder of Rohit Shekhar, son of former chief minister ND Tiwari, today, arrested his wife Apoorva from his residence in South Delhi, for ‘hatching murder conspiracy’.
The son of late Uttar Pradesh CM ND Tiwari was declared brought dead by the doctors on April 16. According to Additional Commissioner of Police Rajiv Ranjan, the police arrested Apoorva with the help of scientific evidence and FSL report. She confessed that she has murdered her husband and cited unhappy marriage as the reason.
“She entered Rohit’s room on April 16 and executed the crime. She later destroyed the evidences. All this happened within one-and-half hours,” said the officer, adding that she initially tried to mislead the Crime Branch team.
According to Rohit Shekhar’s mother Ujjwala Tiwari, the relation between the couple was not a cordial one. There was tension between them since first day since they tied the knot.
