New Delhi, June 28: The Delhi Police on Thursday recovered a knife that was used in the murder of Indian Army Major wife Shailaja Dwivedi, near Meerut. 

“Delhi Police recovers knife that was used in the murder of Shailaja Dwivedi (wife of an Indian Army Major) near Meerut”, news agency ANI reported citing Sources.

On Saturday, 35-year-old Shailza Dwivedi was found with her throat slit at Brar Square. Police said that since the area is isolated, nobody spotted her body for a while. Around 1.30 pm, a water tanker driver passing by saw her lying in a pool of blood and made a PCR call.

As the investigation into the Army officer’s wife murder progresses, the Delhi Police said Major Nikhil Handa, who was arrrested on Sunday in connection with the murder, was apparently obsessed with the woman and wanted to marry her.

According to media reports Major Nikhil Rai Handa returned to the crime scene where he dumped her body near Delhi Cantt Metro station but turned back on seeing the police personnel. He then allegedly fled to Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, from where he was arrested on Sunday morning.
