The police while investigating the case, called Pooja Rathi, wife of the deceased for interrogation. While she answered all the questions asked to her by the police, she kept struggling with her counter replies. This made police suspicious of her acts and hence they started investigating her mobile phone records.
Inspector in-charge of the police station, Ritesh Shah said that the number from which the call was made, was of Narendra Rathi. After this, examination of the IME of the mobile revealed that three SIMs were used in the mobile.
Accused Pooja admitted to her crime in a police interrogation on Saturday, July 25, that she had murdered her husband with the help of her boyfriend, Aman Kumar at their residence of Bapugram on the night of July 1. The duo had jointly planned to eliminate the husband, for which, Aman had also uprooted the seat of the toilet in Pooja’s house and dug a pit that was five feet deep.
