Three women were arrested for allegedly killing a 35-year-old auto-rickshaw driver, police said on Friday. The women, including the victim’s wife, claimed they were fed up of regular torture at the hands of the deceased, police said.
Senior police inspector Prakash Salvi of Trombay police station said, “After killing him, the three took him to Shatabdi hospital, where doctors declared him dead on arrival. When the women asked for a death certificate, the doctors reportedly told them that the certificate would be issued only after postmortem. Following this, the women took the body away.”
The trio reportedly obtained a death certificate from a nursing home. They were preparing to bury him at a graveyard in Trombay, when the police were tipped-off about the incident by an auto rickshaw driver.
