New Delhi: After returning from honeymoon, a Lucknow-based man got the shock of his life as his wife abandoned him at Delhi airport and eloped with her lover.
The newly-wed halted at the airport to board a flight heading to Lucknow and the wife asked her husband to wait outside the washroom. Things seemed eerie when she didn’t come out of the washroom for a long time. Being vexed by the delay, the husband showed her photograph to another woman coming out of the washroom and requested her to check on his wife, who was wearing a blue saree. The husband was left baffled when the woman couldn’t find his wife in the washroom.
Being alarmed by the untoward situation, the husband sought help from security officials at the airport.
According to a CCTV footage of the airport, a burqa clad woman was seen coming out of the washroom, whose gait and height was similar to that of the woman under question, conceded the man when the footage was shown to him. However, he refused to file a police complaint.
After coming out of the washroom, the woman headed to the VIP parking area where she met another man, said an airport official. Both of them were seen halting a taxi. The duo was later on joined by a third person, who according to the police was an accomplice and was party to the plan.
