During questioning, Gokul Machery said he had fatally assaulted his wife in July, police said. He had bought liquor which his wife had consumed and after a verbal argument regarding shifting back to Delhi, he pushed and assaulted her with a blunt weapon causing her death, they said.
   
Gokul informed his neighbours that his wife was consuming alcohol and he fell asleep and later found his wife dead. He claimed that she slipped and hit her head on the TV stand accidentally. Police had then registered a case of unnatural death at Madiwala Police station.
    
Gokul, police said, made the hoax calls that delayed seven international flights from here and Delhi airports, to get his friend into trouble as he was infatuated with his wife.
    
Gokul, who is working with a private firm, had sent WhatsApp messages on Saturday after procuring a SIM based on the identity of his friend, police said.
     
Today, Gokul was produced in a court which remanded him to police custody for two weeks.   Police first questioned Gokul's friend and his wife. Based on information obtained from them, they zeroed in on Gokul.

Police said Gokul also bought a smart phone by paying cash billed in his name and created a facebook ID on which he had posted some objectionable content to implicate his friend.
