In a shocking incident, a man from Uttar Pradesh's Raebareli has been arrested after he was found guilty of brutally murdering his 27-year-old pregnant wife. He further chopped her body into parts, ground them through a flour mill and burnt them.

The incident happened on January 4 but was brought to light after the man's eldest daughter reached her maternal grandmother's house on Tuesday and narrated it to her family. Based on the family's complaint, the accused, Ravindra Kumar (35) was arrested and the deceased woman's charred remains were sent to a forensic laboratory for DNA profiling. "After a complaint by the woman's family, a team visited Ravindra's home and informed Deeh police. Cops tried to trace the woman but failed. On January 10, Urmila's sister Vidya Devi reached Deeh police station and lodged a report against Ravindra accusing him of killing her sister," an investigating official reportedly said.

The accused went missing along with his father and brothers, who were also involved in the murder, but were later caught. During interrogation, Ravindra Kumar confessed to his crimes, stating that he feared his wife would deliver another girl child and he strangulated her to death following an argument. The man has two daughters, aged eleven and seven.
