Next day, when he returned to the locked home, he opened the door with another key which was with a relative. After entering the home and while walking towards the bedroom he noticed blood which eventually led him to discover the dead body of his wife.
"The body of the deceased was found in the bathroom dipped in a pool of blood," the police official added. The police added that during the course of the investigation it was revealed that two unidentified persons had recently come in contact with the deceased woman for the sale of the residence where she was later found dead.

A case under relevant sections of the law has been registered and the police is probing the matter from numerous angles including political, real estate or any other conspiracy.
