New Delhi: Delhi Police on Wednesday said that a “turbulent marriage” led to the murder of Rohit Shekhar Tiwari, the biological son of late veteran politician N.D. Tiwari, by his wife Apoorva Tiwari who was arrested earlier in the day. “Turbulent marriage was the motive for the murder,” the Additional Commissioner of the Crime Branch, Rajiv Ranjan, told reporters here.
“Apoorva smothered Rohit to death… He was in an inebriated state and not in a position to resist.” The officer’s remarks came hours after the police arrested Apoorva Tiwari from her south Delhi flat.
Earlier, Ranjan said, “Apoorva was arrested with the help of scientific evidence and FSL report. She confessed that she murdered her husband.”
“She entered Rohit’s room on April 16 and executed the crime. She later destroyed the evidence. All this happened within one-and-half hours,” said the officer, adding she initially tried to mislead the Crime Branch team. A resident of Defence Colony in south Delhi, Rohit Shekhar Tiwari, 40, was taken by his mother to Max Hospital where he was declared brought dead. The case was taken up by the Crime Branch after the post-mortem report suggested that Shekhar died due to smothering at around 1 a.m (IANS)
