Her husband Navneet (25), a resident of Chiri village in Rohtak, allegedly murdered her as he was suspicious of her.
During interrogation, Navneet told the police that he had murdered Khushboo and thrown her body in a canal at Titoli village in Rohtak.

"Navneet used to suspect Khushboo's character, because of which both used to fight a lot. On September 25, he brought Khushboo to Titoli village and strangled her. He also hit her face and head with a stone to disfigure her. Then, he threw her body in a canal," a Rohtak police spokesperson said. Navneet was produced in the court on Sunday, which sent him to five-day police custody.
