Lucknow, June 26 : A police constable has been arrested for allegedly killing his wife based on a statement made by the couple's four-year-old son which was confirmed by the post-mortem examination report.

The police that visited the spot, found the body hanging from the ceiling fan. "However, in his statement to the police, Gautam's son said that 'papa pushed mummy on the sofa, slapped her and held her neck, pressing it hard. Mummy was gasping for breath and then papa tied her neck and hanged her from the ceiling fan'," said the SHO on Sunday. The post-mortem examination report confirmed the cause of death by strangulation after which the constable who was absconding, was tracked down and arrested. /IANS
