Husband, paramour nabbed for wife, daughter murder

A day after a mother-daughter duo, identified as Tehseen Hussain (32) and daughter Aaliya (2), was found brutally murdered in a half-burnt state at their Mahim residence, police  arrested Tehseen’s husband Ilyas Syed Hussain and his paramour.

Police said the murder was premeditated as Ilyas and Afreen Hussain (22) killed and attempted to destroy evidence very carefully. The duo were arrested on Friday morning and booked under relevant sections of the IPC.

According to the police, Ilyas and Afreen, who were first cousins, were in an illicit relationship for the last few months, which led to a rift between the husband-wife. Sources said Ilyas had also demanded a triple talaq from Tehseen, but she refused to comply as they had two young daughters, aged 2 and 5 years respectively. After repeated attempts to get rid of Tehseen went in vain, Ilyas and Afreen allegedly hatched a plan to kill her.

On Wednesday night, the accused duo made a plan to eliminate Tehseen from the picture in a bid to stay together. According to the plan, Ilyas cut his wife’s throat with a kitchen knife around 8.45am on Thursday and killed her. Unfortunately, as Tehseen screamed, their two-year-old daughter Aaliya who was sleeping in the living room woke up and started screaming. In a desperate attempt to silence Aaliya, her father Ilyas smothered and slit her throat, killing her on the spot, said police.

Ravindra Shisve, Additional Commissioner of Police (Central Region) said, “Aaliya’s murder was not planned and she was killed for no reason. After killing the duo in the kitchen, Ilyas left the house as per daily routine at 9.15 am and met Afreen at Wadala’s Five Gardens. While Ilyas executed the primary plot of the murder, Afreen went over to his residence to execute the other half.” Afreen sent a text message from Tehseen’s mobile phone to Ilyas, which read, ‘Hum jaa rahe hai hamesha ke liye’ (We are going away forever), to portray this as a suicide and burnt the mobile phone after thrashing it.

Shisve added, “When the message was received by Ilyas at 10.57am, he was sitting in his factory at Wadala, to show she was alive hours after he had left his house for work. Afreen then poured household kerosene and edible oil on the mother-daughter duo and set them ablaze. To add fury, Afreen switched on the cooking gas stove to make it look like a suicide.” All this while, a taxi was waiting for Afreen which she had boarded from Wadala and took the same taxi back home, said a police officer requesting confidentiality. The incident came to light on Thursday morning at 11.30am when residents of the 10th floor of the Diamond Apartment in Shahu Nagar saw fumes coming from flat number 1010, which belonged to Syed Ilyas Hussain.

When repeated knocks went unanswered, they broke the door open to find Tehseen and Aaliya dead and their bodies ablaze. The elder daughter was at school when her mother and younger sister were killed. The accused duo were arrested on Friday and booked under relevant sections of the IPC (Section 302) and destroying evidence (Section 201). They would be produced in a local magistrate court on Saturday.
