### Pune City Police Arrests Husband for Murder of Missing Woman
In a shocking turn of events, the Pune City police have arrested a man for the murder of his wife, who had been missing for nearly two-and-a-half months. The accused, identified as 26-year-old Amolsingh Murli Jadhav, was apprehended by the authorities on Sunday. The victim, Lalita Jadhav, was 38 years old and her husband is 12 years younger than her.
According to the police, Amolsingh Jadhav not only filed a missing person report but also actively participated in the search for his wife. However, investigations revealed that he had ulterior motives. It was discovered that Jadhav had provided false information to the police, leading to an FIR being lodged against him under sections 182, 201, and 302 of the Indian Penal Code.
The police press release stated that on October 28, 2021, Jadhav had reported his wife missing. A team from the Lonikand police station was assigned to locate Lalita. During the investigation, it was uncovered that Jadhav had been present at his workplace, a private company in Markal, on the day he filed the missing person report. Furthermore, his mobile phone had been switched off for a period of 15 days during that time.
Suspicious of his behavior, the police interrogated Jadhav, eventually leading to a confession. He admitted to strangling his wife at the Mandhardevi Ghat in Wai, Satara district, and disposing of her body in a valley. Acting on this information, the police recovered Lalita’s skeleton from a 250ft deep valley at the Mandhardevi ghat. The remains were then taken to Pune’s Sassoon hospital for post-mortem examination.
The motive behind the crime, as stated by the police, was Jadhav’s unhappiness in his marriage. Allegedly forced into the union by his family, Jadhav failed to convince Lalita to agree to a divorce, prompting him to resort to murder. The police also revealed that Jadhav had planned the murder based on the plot of the Bollywood movie ‘Drishyam.’ By filing the missing person report himself and assisting the police in the search for his wife, he had hoped to avoid suspicion and arrest.
This tragic incident serves as a reminder of the importance of thorough investigations and the relentless pursuit of justice. The Pune City police have demonstrated their commitment to ensuring that no crime goes unpunished, no matter the circumstances..
