Hyderabad: A 32-year-old housewife, reportedly involved in a Rs 500 crore multi-level marketing (MLM) fraud in Tamil Nadu in 2012 along with her husband, was arrested for allegedly killing him at Moula Ali recently. Initially, she told police that her husband died due to ill-health, but they became suspicious when she refused to lodge a complaint.
Melange Sukanya from Tamil Nadu and her husband, Melange John Prabhakaran, 50, were previously arrested by CID in a Rs 500 crore money back policy cheating racket. Prabhakaran was arrested in 2012, but got out on bail within eight months. On the other hand, Sukanya, who was arrested in 2013, was in jail till 2018.
Prabhakaran moved to Andal Nagar, Moula Ali, along with another woman soon after release. Sukanya came to know about her husband’s whereabouts recently. On June 15, she came to Hyderabad, but was shocked to see Prabhakaran staying with another woman.
“Prabhakaran requested her to return. After his requests fell on deaf ears, Prabhakaran threatened her to leave the house,” a Malkajgiri police officer said. Vexed with her life, Sukanya on the intervening night of June 23 and 24 smothered him to death with a pillow while he was in deep sleep.
After his death, Sukanya told police that Prabhakaran was suffering from paralysis and died due to ill health. When Sukanya refused to lodge a complaint, police grew suspicious seeing an injury on the man’s nose and registered a case. On interrogation, Sukanya confessed that she killed her husband. After the admission, police altered the section, slapped murder charges against Sukanya and arrested her on Saturday.
