Major obsessed with colleague's wife held for killing her Jun 25, 2018 0 116 12345 IANSNew DelhiAn Army Major,"obsessed"with his colleague's wife, was on Sunday arrested for killing her by slashing her throat and running his car over her to make it look like an accident. Delhi Police arrested Nikhil Rai Handa from Meerut in Uttar Pradesh -- more than 100 km from Delhi -- and recovered a Honda City car in which he committed the gruesome murder on Saturday.Handa told investigators that he had an altercation with Shailja, 35, wife of another Major Amit Dwivedi, in his car and slashed her throat with a"Swiss knife"before pushing her out on the road. "To make it look like an accident, Handa then ran over his car on Shailja. Handa had an obsession with Shailja and was pressurising her to marry him,"Deputy Commissioner of Police Vijay Kumar said in a media briefing. Handa revealed during interrogation that he knew Shailja since 2015 and in 2017, he and the victim's husband were posted together in Dimapur in Nagaland."While Amit was there with his family, Handa lived alone,"he said. As Shailja came to Delhi two months ago and started residing in Army quarters in Naraina near the Cantonment with her husband who was assigned to leave for a deputation to Sudan for a United Nation's mission in a couple of weeks, Handa also came here on June 2. When Handa came to know that Shailja was undergoing physiotherapy at the Base Hospital in the Cantonment area, he also started taking migraine treatment in the same hospital to maintain proximity with the victim, said the official, adding he also got his child admitted to that hospital. Shailja, who hailed from Amritsar, had been coming to the hospital for the last four days for treatment of her ankle. Around 10 a.m. on Saturday, Shailja left home in an Army vehicle for the physiotherapy session but she went with Handa in his car from outside the hospital as their image was captured in a CCTV camera installed there, the official said. When the driver went to pick her up later, he was informed that she had not attended the session. Later in the afternoon, her body was spotted by a passerby near Brar Square."Though they shared a strong friendship, Shailja was not in a situation to get married to Handa. They had an altercation in the car over the issue after which he killed her,"the official said.
