Balasore Police cracked the mystery surrounding the recovery of a man's body stuffed inside a bag by arresting two persons, including the deceased's wife. The accused have been identified as Sulochana and her brother-in-law.

As per reports, Sulochana killed her husband Ramesh, who allegedly used to beat her over petty issues. Fed up with repeated harassment and torture, Sulochana allegedly killed Ramesh with the help of a sharp weapon on May 10. After keeping his body at her residence, Sulochana took the help of her brother-in-law to dispose of the body.

Ramesh's body was recovered around 7 km away from Balrampur village on May 12, informed Balasore SP Sagarika Nath.

"After recovering the body in two bags, we alerted all police stations nearby to ascertain the identity of the deceased. Initially, we had suspicion over the deceased's wife and only after interrogation, she confessed to having killed her husband," said Nath.

Nath further informed that Sulochana's brother-in-law helped her to dispose of Ramesh's body in a two-wheeler.

"The murder weapon and the two-wheeler and apparel of the deceased have been seized and further investigation is underway," Nath added.
