It was alleged that Satish had an extramarital affair and his wife Shwetha knew about it, a police officer said. Cops said that she decided to keep quiet about the affair as it would ruin the family's reputation. However, Shwetha changed her mind after relatives who suspected the affair asked her about it, and hence, she confronted her husband. Thane Shocker: Man Abuses, Bites On-Duty Cop in Naupada; Arrested.
