A man allegedly pushed his wife off the third floor of a building on Thursday and fled from the spot after informing his sister-in-law, police said.
The incident took place at around 3 pm when Hansraj Bairwa (45) and his wife Nisha Bairwa (40) had gone to see a house for rent in Prem Nagar, Circle Inspector, Udyog Nagar police station, Mohammed Ibrahim said.
Reportedly, a fight broke out between the couple and in a fit of rage Hansraj pushed his wife off the third floor which lead to her on-the-spot death.
The couple were not in a good relation from the past few months due to which Nisha was staying at her maternal uncle’s house in the city, Ibrahim said.
A case has been lodged against Hansraj under IPC section 30 and efforts are on to arrest him, he said.
The body will be sent for post-mortem on Friday morning while further investigation is underway, he added.
