"We will arrest Gaurav after his discharge from the hospital," V B Jadhav, sub-inspector of Faraskhana police station, said.

Jadhav told TOI that Gaurav and Sharddha got married in December last year. As perShraddha's statement, since their wedding, Gaurav and his parents had been harassing her to bring Rs 4 lakh from her parents. "They also beat her up," he said.

"On April 12, Gaurav called Shraddha on her cell phone saying that he had met with an accident," he said.

Once Sharddha reached home, Gaurav asked her to come out with him as he wanted to talk.

"When they reached near Shaniwarwada, Gaurav asked Shraddha to wait. He went to the market and purchased a bottle of poison. The duo then entered Shaniwarwada," Jadhav said.

Inside Shaniwarwada, Gaurav mixed the poison with some water and forced Shraddha to drink it. He also consumed it. The couple went back home where Shraddha started vomiting. She informed Gaurav's parents about the incident. "They were rushed to the hospital," Jhadav said. "We had recorded their statement at the hospital."

Gaurav was brought to the police station for questioning on Sunday. "We had to re-admit him in the hospital as he started complaining of uneasiness," Jadhav said.
