Neetu and Sanjeev Kumar, 36, married in 2011 and have two children; a seven years old daughter, and a five-year-old son.

As per Police officials, the couple used to have regular fights but on Sunday their fight went deadly over an extramarital affair after which Sanjeev threw Neetu from the balcony of their rented flat on the eighth floor. Sanjeev works as a financier in a private firm, while Neetu was a housewife.

Rajkiran, brother of deceased, complained that his brother-in-law, Sanjeev, was having an extramarital affair for the past three years. As per Rajkiran, his sister always objected to his relationship, but Sanjeev used to claim that the woman is his sister and that’s why she visits their house frequently.

“Sanjeev then told Neetu that he was in Delhi but he was living with the other woman in her house for two months, and my sister came to know about this,” said Rajkiran. He told police that Sanjeev and Neetu had a fight on Sunday following which Neetu was thrown off the balcony in front of the two children.
