Renuka Khanna, accused of killing realtor husband Nikhil, is not forthcoming in interrogation: Pune police | Pune News

The police investigating the death of realtor Nikhil Khanna (36) in Pune have said that his wife Renuka Jakhar Khanna (38), whose alleged assault on his face had led to a nasal fracture and bleeding, is not cooperating with her interrogators.

“We have started questioning her but she has not been forthcoming in her 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,” Senior Inspector Sanjay Patange said Sunday.

Nikhil died on Friday afternoon at the Khannas’ family residence in Ganga Satellite Society in Wanwadi allegedly after Renuka hit her on the face, leading to a nasal fracture and bleeding. Preliminary findings of the autopsy showed that Nikhil suffered blunt trauma on the head, according to the police.

“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 them. Based on the investigation, a chargesheet will be filed subsequently,” Assistant Commissioner of Police Shahurao Salve said.

The Wanwadi police, who arrested Renuka after Nikhil’s father Dr Pushpraj Khanna approached them with a complaint against his daughter-in-law, produced her before a judicial magistrate on Saturday and obtained her custodial remand till Tuesday.

As per Dr Khanna’s police complaint, Nikhil and Renuka had started quarrelling with each other soon after their marriage in November 2017. He has also claimed that Renuka had behavioural issues. “My son (Nikhil) used to deal with her with patience. Her stubbornness and whimsical nature had been causing us a lot of distress. Also, she used to frequently fight with our househelps, because of which we were struggling to retain people to work at home,” he said in his complaint.

According to Dr Khanna, Renuka on Friday called and requested him to reach home immediately as she and Nikhil had had a fight. Dr Khanna later found Nikhil lying unconscious in the couple’s bedroom with blood oozing from his nose and mouth. He was declared dead after he was taken to hospital.
