Bengaluru: Banashankari police detained a man for allegedly murdering his wife and setting her body on fire on Wednesday.

The deceased woman was identified as Afreen Khan, a resident of Yarabnagar. Her husband Laalu was taken into custody on basis of suspicion.

According to police, Afreen was attacked with knife and scissors and stabbed all over her body. After she succumbed, her body was laid on a bed and set afire.

Noticing the fire in the house, which was locked from outside, neighbours broke in and discovered Afreen’s body.

The couple was married eight years ago and had two children. However, they fought often and Afreen had asked her mother to take her home.
