Rajkot: A Rajkot sessions court on Saturday sentenced a police sub-inspector (PSI) Hiren Parmar (44) to life imprisonment for killing his pregnant wife with his service revolver at his official residence in 2013. Additional district judge H M Pavar also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on Parmar.
The court, however, acquitted Parmar’s family members, who were also accused in the case, for want of evidence.
According to case details, Parmar suspected that his two months pregnant wife Rashmi (27) was having an affair. The incident took place after Rashmi had returned from her parent’s house. Parmar, a resident of Ramnathpara police line, went to his duty on January 23, 2013 after locking his wife inside the house. When Parmar returned, he had a heated argument with his wife. He also thrashed Rashmi and then shot her with his service revolver.
Special public prosecutor Chetan Kachadiya told TOI, “The court agreed with the prosecution’s arguments and convicted Parmar.” tnn
