DEHRADUN: An Army official was stabbed to death allegedly by his former girlfriend and her companion at the hill resort of Mussoorie in Uttarakhand, police said on Sunday.
Two persons, Aparna Shahi and her boyfriend, Ankit Thakur have been arrested for stabbing to death Sunder Swaroop Sharma, a Warrant Officer in the Army.
The murder came to light when the police discovered the blood-stained body of Sharma yesterday at Hathipaon area of Mussoorie.
On investigations, it was found that Sharma was having an alleged affair with Aparna, a student of a polytechnic college in Dehra Dun.
When Aparna was grilled, she revealed that she along with her new boyfriend Ankit killed Sharma and threw the body into a gorge. She said Sharma was allegedly harassing her after she snapped relations with him last year.
When the harassment continued, both Ankit and Aparna invited Sharma to Mussoorie where the duo killed the army official with a ‘khukhri’, police said.
The two would be produced before a district court for police remand on Monday.
