Police: Woman accused of punching husband to death not co-operating with probe | Pune News

The PUNE City police, which is investigating the death of 36-year-old realtor Nikhil Khanna (36), said on Sunday that his wife Renuka (38) is not co-operating with them. Police are now considering questioning the couple’s family members, relatives and friends to get more clarity on the relationship between the husband and wife.

When asked about Renuka’s interrogation, senior inspector Sanjay Patange said, “We have started questioning her but she has not been forthcoming in the interrogation. We will soon start questioning the family members and relatives of the deceased and the accused to know about their relationship in the recent past and other aspects related to the case.”

Assistant Commissioner of Police (Wanwadi division) Shahurao Salve said, “As part of the investigation to establish the sequence of events and the cause, we will be recording statements of the complainant, the accused and all the persons connected to the couple. Based on the investigation, a chargesheet will be filed subsequently.”

According to Wanwadi police, which is investigating the case, Nikhil allegedly died on Friday afternoon at the Khanna’s family’s residence in Ganga Satellite Society in Wanwadi after Renuka punched him on the face, which led to a nasal fracture and bleeding.

Nikhil’s father Dr Pushpraj Khanna received a call from Renuka, who asked him to come home immediately as she and Nikhil had a fight. After reaching home, Dr Khanna found Nikhil unconscious in the couple’s bedroom with blood oozing from his nose and mouth. Nikhil was declared dead after he was taken to a hospital.

Police also said preliminary findings of the autopsy showed that Nikhil also suffered blunt trauma on the head.

Dr Pushpraj approached Wanwadi police to lodge a complaint of murder against Renuka. As per Dr Khanna’s complaint to the police, the quarrels between Nikhil, who worked in the real estate industry, and Renuka had commenced soon after their marriage in November 2017. He also claimed that Renuka had behavioral issues which had caused stress to the family.

“My son (Nikhil) used to deal with her with a lot of patience. Her stubbornness and whimsical nature had been causing us a lot of distress. She used to frequently fight with our househelps,” Dr Khanna said. Based on his complaint, police arrested Renuka and produced her before a magistrate on Saturday. Police have obtained her custodial remand till November 28.
