    Prema used to stay in the room located upstairs at the house while various other rooms were lying vacant. Rajesh also has one widow sister Nanda who reside out of Nagpur. Nanda’s only son who was addicted to liquor died earlier while her daughter in law left for her home after his death. Nanda was living alone since then. It is learnt that Rajesh had insisted on sheltering his sister Nanda in one of the vacant rooms at his house here. However, his wife Ritu was reluctant to have Nanda in their house. This led to an argument between Rajesh and his wife that started on Wednesday.
