The man who killed his girlfriend on a busy road on the outskirts of Mumbai after he suspected her of dating someone else has told the police that he had tried to end his life twice, a police official said on Wednesday.


Rohit Yadav (32) struck 18 blows on the head of Arati Yadav (22) with a spanner, killing her in Vasai on Tuesday, even as scores of people watched the chilling crime. He did not flee the scene and sat near the body till police arrived.

Aarti had approached the Achole police in Palghar district on June 8 after Rohit threatened her and broke her phone, but she also requested the cops not to be harsh on him, he said.
