The deceased has been identified as Subhadra Mukherjee (20), wife of Biswajit Mukherjee.
Police have arrested Biswajit on the basis of a complaint lodged by Subhadra’s family, who alleged that she was murdered for dowry.
According to sources, Subhadra had a heated argument with her husband last night over some issue. In a fit of rage, Biswajit attacked her wife with a shock absorber of an auto rickshaw. She died on the spot.
The couple has a seven-year-old daughter.
