A video of the horrifying incident had gone viral on social media platforms.
Thane police have arrested a man who allegedly killed his wife by pushing her before a moving train at Vasai Road railway station in neighboring Palghar district of Maharashtra, an official said on Tuesday.
The victim died on the spot and the badly mutilated body was later sent for postmortem.
The official said a preliminary probe revealed the woman had gone out for two days with a friend of her husband which annoyed him and both had a quarrel over it.
The preliminary investigation also indicated that the man doubted his wife’s character and this led to the incident, he said. A case was registered against the man under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code, the official said.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Railway Sandeep Bajibakhre lauded the police team which nabbed the accused. (This story has not been edited by Our Editor Team and is generated from a Feed.)
