"We have arrested Sumit under section 304B (dowry death) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC. A police team has been sent to Delhi to arrest Meera Chopra, the other accused in the case. Further investigation is on progress," said a senior police official.
Initially, the case was accepted as a clean suicide. But later, police witnessed a twist in the entire issue. Ruchi, who was fond of writing diaries, wrote that she was tortured by her husband over his affair with Tamil Star Meera Chopra. Also, he compared her randomly with Meera. Hence, this was the core reason that compelled Ruchi to take up drastic steps under hyper-depression.
Ruchi's sister Shefali alleged: "Sumit first killed and then hanged her. He has an affair with model Meera Chopra, cousin of Priyanka Chopra." But, Sumit denied all allegations and claimed that he shared a good and a healthy relation with his wife.
"I had a good relation with my wife, both at home and in office. My brokerage house suffered heavy losses last week in the market. Maybe she got into depression because of this and took the extreme step," said Sumit.
