Muzaffarpur: In a disturbing incident, a young man visiting his in-laws was allegedly murdered by his wife and in-laws in the Gai Ghat police station area of Muzaffarpur, Bihar. Following the killing, the perpetrators buried the body in a nearby field.
The shocking episode unraveled when women grazing goats noticed a dog digging in the area, leading to suspicions due to the stench of a decomposing corpse.
