The accused said that after the crime, he is worried about the fate of his wife, who could face the wrath of the society and taunts for the deeds of her husband. The accused’s wife used to sell incense sticks and flowers outside a shrine near their house to help her husband financially to run the family.

Commissioner of police (CP), Mandeep Singh Sidhu, during a press conference made an appeal to people for ensuring safety of Robin’s wife and not to harass her. He said that the locals had helped the police to solve the triple murder case, adding that he was hopeful that they would not harass the woman.

The CP added that the police have questioned the wife of the accused and probed her role in the crime. The police found that the woman was not a part of the triple murder. Moreover, she was not aware that her husband had murdered three neighbours. She came to know about the incident on Friday morning when local residents went inside the victims’ house after a milkman alerted them.

The police official said that the accused executed the most heinous crime and the police will appeal to the court for the capital punishment for him, but his wife is innocent.
