Man held for ‘killing lover’ after fight at lodge in Madh
A 36-year-old man was tracked down and arrested in the early hours of Wednesday for allegedly murdering his lover, a 47-year-old woman, at a lodge in Madh, Malad (west) on Monday. Police said the incident took place after the two got into a fight, adding that the families of both the victim and accused were aware about the extra-marital affair. However, the motive behind the crime remains unclear.
The victim, 47-year-old Amalumary Charlie, worked as a guard for a security establishment and the arrested accused, 36-year-old Amit Bhuvad, worked as a housekeeper. Charlie lost her husband and had been living with her three children. Bhuvad lived with his wife and their seven-year-old child. It was alleged that the two had checked into a lodge on Monday evening where they are believed to have consumed liquor, after which a fight took place. During the fight, Bhuvad allegedly strangled her to death and left the room on Tuesday morning.
A housekeeper from the hotel knocked on their door to find out if they wanted to extend their stay. As nobody answered, the lodge authorities unlocked the door with a duplicate key and found the woman lying unconscious. She was taken to a hospital where she was declared dead.
