To be with her secret lover legally, this is what a woman did to her husband. Here are the details of the report.
A woman and her alleged paramour killed her husband and then disfigured her lover’s face with acid to pass him off as her husband. This incident is inspired by the Tollywood blockbuster, Evadu, in which actor Allu Arjun underwent plastic surgery to resemble another character (Ram Charan Tej). However, their plan went bust and Nagarkurnool police arrested the woman on Sunday.
The woman, M Swathi, 27, along with her paramour Rajesh, a physiotherapist, had murdered her husband M Sudhakar Reddy, 32, of Nagarkurnool nearly two weeks ago and dumped the body in a forest.
Sudhakar Reddy was operating a stone-crushing unit. He married Swathi, a trained nurse, and the couple was blessed with two children. Swathi would go to Rajesh for physiotherapy and later they started having an affair. The duo felt Sudhakar was an obstacle in their relationship and decided to eliminate him.
Around 5 am on November 27, when Sudhakar was in sleep, Rajesh and Swathi gave him an anesthetic injection and he lost consciousness. “The duo hit him hard on the head with an iron rod and killed him. Later, they moved the body into the boot of a car and dumped the body in the forest area in Nawabpet in Mahbubnagar district,” the DSP said.
“After they returned home, Swathi smeared acid on Rajesh and disfigured his face. Later, she called up her relatives and told them that unidentified persons entered the house and threw petrol on her husband. ‘Injured’ Rajesh, who was pretending as Sudhakar Reddy, was shifted to Apollo Hospitals in Hyderabad.
As the burns started healing, Sudhakar Reddy’s family members suspected the injured man was actually Sudhakar. By then, they had spent around Rs 5 lakh for the treatment of their ‘son’. “They repeatedly asked the injured person (Rajesh) in ICU about details of family members. He didn’t speak a word as they would recognize his voice.
As he was unable to give details, family members came to a conclusion that he was not Sudhakar Reddy. The family went to police and lodged another complaint, stating some other person took the place of Sudhakar Reddy. They also expressed doubts over Swathi,” the DSP said.
At last Swathi admitted the truth and she also showed the location where the body was dumped. Police retrieved the decomposed body and handed it over to the family members. A murder case was booked against the two. Swathi was arrested on Sunday. Police said they would arrest Rajesh after he gets discharged from the hospital.
