Gurugram, June 14 (IANS) A man, who suspected his wife's character, strangled her to death here on Thursday, police said.

He had married the woman after she accused that he had raped her a few years ago.

The police said that Mahesh Kumar, 27, a resident of Jaipur, and his wife Seema, 31, hailing from Moti Nagar area of Delhi, were living in Suncity residential area of Gurugram.

"Seema had slapped rape charges on Kumar in 2011 when he was living in Moti Nagar and running a shop. Later, both reached an agreement in 2013 and got married," Arvind Dahiya, chief of Sector 53 Police Station told IANS.
