Nagpur:

A 37-year-old woman was arrested in Nagpur, Maharashtra, for allegedly hiring contract killers to murder her husband, the police said on Monday.

Devika was arrested along with Chandan Natthuji Diyewar, 28, for allegedly killing her husband Jaideep Lokhande, a police official said.

"Contract killer Sunil Malviya, a native of Madhya Pradesh is missing. Jaideep was found murdered, with his throat slit, on Saturday morning. We found Devika's answers on the incident evasive. On questioning her after going through the phone records, she confessed to the crime," the official added.

"Chandan has said he helped Devika as Jaideep used to drink and beat her up," he said.

He said the two men accepted Rs 50,000 from Devika and killed Lokhande late Friday night when he was returning from a party.
