According to a police official, the man had objected to his wife talking on the mobile phone, which triggered a verbal altercation.
The police are now on the lookout for the accused woman, while a probe has also been ordered against some of the men in khaki also, over alleged inaction on the complaint, the official said.
The incident took place on February 7, when Nanke (35) had an argument with his wife Pooja, he said.
The woman, meanwhile, fled the spot, police said.
Superintendent of Police Pramod Kumar said, "We have registered a case against the accused woman based on the complaint filed by the deceased's brother. Efforts are being made to trace the woman and arrest her," he said.
The SP said that the incident took place on the night of February 7.
"No action was taken against the accused woman by the police from February 8 to February 12, despite the complaint lodged by the deceased's family members on February 8. As a result, instructions have also been issued to initiate probe against policemen for their laxity in duty," he said.
