Reportedly, Priyanka had an extra-marital affair with Veeru Burma, who was her sister’s friend. She wanted to marry him, and often visited Barma's home, where she met his younger brother Karan. She later brought Karan along with her, and introduced him as a relative to her husband. Karan then started living with them in their house. The woman, with the help of Karan, plotted to kill her husband by mixing poison in the man's food.
On Tuesday, when the victim started losing his consciousness after having a meal, Priyanka and Karan used a cloth to strangulate him. The hospital doctors alerted the police after seeing visible ligature marks on his neck. Police has arrested Priyanka and Karan, while her lover Burma has absconded.
