A 32-year old Army man, suspected to have committed suicide here last month, was allegedly killed by his wife and two others, including her “paramour”, and they have been arrested, police said on Tuesday.

The 26-year old woman confessed to have killed her 32-year old husband, a Havildar in the Army, as he objected to her “illicit” relationship, Commissioner of Police R K Meena told reporters here.

The woman, her paramour and his friend were arrested following investigations, he said.

Initially, police registered a case of unnatural death after the soldier was found hanging in his house here on August 19. His wife had then gave a statement that he allegedly committed suicide after a tiff with her.
