Colombo: A Sri Lankan allegedly murdered his father-in-law and in a fit of rage dragged his wife into the forest.
According to local media reports, the woman had returned to stay with her dad after constant fights with the husband.
They were married for just three months.
On that fateful day, the suspect went in search of his wife and picked up a quarrel with his dad-in-law, following which he pulled a sharp weapon and murdered the 55-year-old man.
Then he dragged his wife into the forest before fleeing the place.
He has a criminal past, reports media.
The police, however, nabbed him within four hours.
