HYDERABAD:A constable at Kanchanbagh police station was arrested by the Chandryanagutta police on Monday for his alleged involvement in his wife’s death. His wife, Pooja, had been found hanging from the ceiling of her house a few days ago in the afternoon when her husband had gone on duty. Police found a diary in which Pooja stated that she had been harassed mentally by her husband.

Chandrayanagutta police inspector N.Rama Rao said Praveen was arrested and sent to judicial remand. 

Pooja’s mother told the police that her daughter had fallen in love with Praveen and they got married without elders’ consent. Their respective fathers were sub-inspectors in CRPF and friends. The two families lived in CRPF residential quarters and Praveen used to visit Pooja’s house and they fell in love. One and a half years ago, they married without informing their parents.

After marriage, Praveen and Pooja convinced Pooja’s parents and stayed with them for some time. Later, they rented a house and started living separately. However, disputes arose soon and the young couple bickered even on petty issues.
