Police are holding Velji Jayaben Jayeshikumar the wife to the slain Indian businessman Jayesh Kumar Kanji ego went missing on 14th the Valentine’s Day only to find his body on Monday in Lukenya, Machakos.

The wife was picked by detectives from Nairobi area Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau on Wednesday after investigations revealed that she was in communication with one of the other four suspects in police custody, on the day her husband was killed and his body doused in acid.

Police investigations have revealed that the plan was not to kill the businessman but to maim him.

Sources close to the investigations say Kumar was to be punished because he was engaged in an extra-marital affair.

One of the suspects claims he was approached by one of the family members of the businessman last December.

According to the police, on Valentine’s Day, Kumar left his house accompanied by his wife and children. At around 9.30am, they were seen walking along Kodi Road in Nairobi West. He then parted ways with his family.

Kumar is said to have been ‘picked’ by one Kaylan Shivji at a petrol station in Lang’ata and proceeded to Machakos County. This was the last time he was seen alive.

The following day, his brothers – Hetish Kumar and Dipak Valji – went to Lang’ata Police Station to report a missing person after Kumar failed to show up that evening.

The businessman’s body was found at Lukenya Conservancy by security guards.

The guards alerted Kyumbi (DCI) officers who collected the bones and documented the matter as an incident of an unknown person who had been eaten by wild animals.

The first suspect was arrested at Tuff Foam in Athi River.

Jayaben appeared before Magistrate Irene Kahuya after a probe revealed that she could have taken part in the murder plot against her husband.

She was however not charged after the prosecution requested 21 days to detain her as detectives continued with investigations.

Jayaben, through her lawyer Ifran Kassam, opposed the application with Kassam requesting the court to grant the prosecution only seven days to hold her, arguing that she is not a flight risk as police have her passport and that she lives with her son and mother-in-law who depend on her.

The court granted the prosecution 14 days to hold her in police custody.
