A 30-year-old woman, along with her accomplices, allegedly killed her husband in Delhi and tried to mislead investigators by saying the man had committed suicide, police said on Thursday. The woman and her husband had a 20-year age difference and the couple did not have any child, they said. Police said the woman was not happy with her marriage and hatched a plan, with one Veeru Burma and Karan, to kill her husband.
