The deceased has been identified as Phute Dehury of the same village.
As per the report, Rupa Hembram who works in Forest Department and remains deployed in Mahabirshal Section under Dudhiani Range had married to Parbati Hembra three years back.
While the couple was living in Budhigaon village post marriage, Rupa was remaining away from home for longtime due to the nature of his job. Taking the advantage of his absence Phute had allegedly developed an illicit affair with Parbati in due course and later eloped with her a few days back.
After coming to know that his wife had eloped with her paramour and the later had even aborted her baby, Rupa attacked on the house where the duo was sleeping last night.
While she hacked Phute to death with a billhook in sleep, Parbati sustained critical injuries in the attack.
Getting intimated on the murder, local SDPO Satyabikash Bhuyan accompanied by Karanjia IIC Sarojini Singh rushed to the spot and arrested Rupa.
Critically injured Parbati was admitted to Karanjia Sub-Divisional Hospital for treatment and the body of her paramour was sent for autopsy.
