An Indian Army officer, Major Nikhil Handa was arrested by the Police on Sunday afternoon in connection to the murder case of the wife of another army officer. Handa was arrested from Meerut in connection with the murder of the wife of Lt Col Amit Dwivedi.

The body of the deceased was found in the Brar Square area near the Delhi Cantt metro station in the national capital. The throat of the dead body was slit and the body was lying in a pool of blood.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, West District Vijay Kumar said, “We received a call for an accident but later found injuries on her neck. We are registering a murder case. We have solid clues about the accused. Her husband identified her.”

He further told the media that the woman's identity was ascertained after her husband went to the police station around 4.00 pm to get a missing complaint lodged. The police revealed that the woman had left home to visit the army hospital for a physiotherapy session at around 10.00 am after which she went missing.

The police said that an official military vehicle dropped her outside the hospital. When the driver went to pick her up, he was told that the woman had not turned up for the physiotherapy session on Saturday.

Based on preliminary information, the police have said that the woman may have known the culprit. They further said that there were no signs of struggle, which rules out sexual assault or robbery as the motive behind the murder.
