  December 25, 2023 By: INSEC

District Police Office Dhanusha arrested  Motibabu Shah for killing his 22-year-old wife Aarati Kumari Shah of Mithila Bihari Municipality-3 Mithileshwar Mauwahi, currently living in Janakpurdham sub-metropolis-9 Thapa Chowk.

District Police Office SP Mitrabandhu Sharma informed the accused Motibabu should be jailed after carrying out the necessary procedures. The Supreme Court issued an order to remand the accused on December 6, who was released by the High Court in Dhanusha, into custody for trial. Earlier on October 5, the Janakpur High Court had decided to release the accused along with his father Madan Mohan.

The High Court in Janakpur overturned the decision of the District Court in Dhanusha and ordered the release of Aarati’s husband, Motibabu, and father-in-law, Madan Mohan Bayahut Sundi, who were in pre-trial detention. However, in the writ against that order, the Supreme Court partially overturned the decision of the High Court. On December 6, the Supreme Court ordered Aarti’s husband, Motibabu, to be remanded in custody for trial.

Aarati was discovered deceased, hanging in her residence in Janakpurdham sub-metropolis-9, Thapachowk, on May 21.The aggrieved party has alleged that her husband and in-laws killed Aarati for dowry.
