A Delhi court on Monday granted four-day police custody to an Army Major, arrested for allegedly killing another officer's wife.

Metropolitan Magistrate Manisha Tripathy granted custody of Major Nikhil Handa to the police after it said he had to be taken to Meerut in Uttar Pradesh to make certain recoveries, including his clothes and weapon used to commit the crime.

Police arrested Handa from Meerut on Saturday for his alleged involvement in the killing of another Major's wife in west Delhi.
        
The woman's body was found with her throat slit near the Brar Square in the Delhi Cantonment area.

Initially, the police was informed that a woman had died in an accident. Later, when they inspected the body, it was found that her throat was slit, the police had said.

The accused had allegedly drove a car over her face and the body to make the incident appear like an accident, the police alleged.
        
The woman was dropped at the Army Base Hospital in her husband's official vehicle.
