Kajal Shah slow poisons husband betraying his trust
Indicating that relationships are extremely risky in India,a woman kajal shah along with her lover hitesh jain allegedly poisoned her husband kamalkant shah, a garment businessman in Santa Cruz according to media reports. Kajal Shah had left home after her husband became suspicious, yet she returned, only to kill her husband, mother-in-law who made the mistake of trusting her.
Instead of killing him suddenly which would make people suspicious, she used slow poisoning to kill her husband.The poisons were allegedly procured from a chemical dealer and mixed in the flavored milk which she gave her husband.
Initially the doctors at Criticare Hospital could not diagnose the problem, so shah was admitted to Bombay Hospital. Doctors were shocked that his organs were failing, so blood poisoning was suspected. The blood tests indicated that he was being slowly poisoned since the arsenic and thallium levels in his blood were very high. So though the poisoning was detected in September, the hospital could not do anything about it and kamalkant shah die of multiple organ failure on September 19.
However since the doctors suspected poisoning they reported the death to the police who called all the family members to ask them whether they had any suspicion. While the wife was evasive the sister Kavita Lalwani told the police that their relationship was strained and his mother had died a month earlier of similar symptoms. After the death of kamalkant shah, his wife immediately sold the bhiwandi office to collect the money, and was collecting the insurance money from his policies, when the police arrested her.
Times of India has reported the name of the wife as kajal shah, while hindustan times report said that the wife’s name was kavita. This indicates that there is a problem with the quality of media reporting, that reputed newspapers are mentioning different names for the same woman. Similarly there is some difference in the age of the husband, wife.
This shows that it is not advisable to trust a person who shows any signs of hostility, they may kill, like the case of shraddha walkar, aftab poonawala also showed.
