Thrissur woman found dead inside rented house; husband taken into custody for suspected murder
Thrissur: A woman was found dead inside her rented house in Mala. Police have taken the husband into custody after he went missing.
Puthanchira native Rahmath (30) was found dead inside her rented house on Thursday. It is suspected that the woman was strangled to death by her husband Shahansad.
Vadakkekara native Shahansad was staying at a rented house in Mala along with his family. He was running a fish business after returning from abroad. Shahansad was with his wife and children at home on Wednesday night. However, Shahnsad dropped their children, aged and nine and three, at his home in Vadakkekara on Thursday morning and went away.
When Shahnsad and children turned up at the house without Rahmath, Shahnsad's father asked his neighbours in Mala to check what had happened.
Following this, the neighbours check Shahnsad's rented house and found the doors locked from outside. They broke in and found Rahmath's body.
The Mala police have registered a case and are investigating.
