“Jasbeer Singh Chauhan, 32, and Bhawna Gupta, 32, killed Parul Gupta at her home at Palam village area after she came know about their illicit relationship,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police Sharad Agarwal.

The two were apprehended late Sunday night from their home in Palam village.

“We received a call at Police Control Room that a woman was lying dead in Sadh Nagar area of Palam Colony Feb 22. The woman, identified as Parul, was found on her bed with deep multiple stab injuries on the neck,” said Agarwal.

Her mobile phone was found missing and the cupboard was opened.

During investigations, police found that Parul’s mother-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law and their two children resided on the first floor of the house whereas she, her husband and six-year-old son resided on the ground floor.

“The husband of the deceased was working in a garment manufacturing unit at G.T. Karnal Road,” Agarwal said. On the day of incident, Parul’s husband was way for his work and their son was at school.

During investigation, police also found that that Parul was not at good terms with her sister-in-law Bhawna.

Bhawna broke down during interrogation and confessed of her role in the murder. “She told us that that she along with Chauhan, who is living just opposite to the their house, killed Parul,” said Agarwal

She also told police that Chauhan used to visit their house frequently as they used to hire his taxi whenever they travelled in the city or outside Delhi and during this time, both of them developed intimacy.
