The relative immediately reported the matter to security authorities who rushed to the scene and cordoned off the area, lifted fingerprints and inspected the location meticulously.
Meanwhile, the wife’s disappearance raised questions.
Investigations revealed that the couple recently had a heated argument which also turned violent. The reports on disputes made the wife main suspect.
