Man murders wife of 20 years

Press Trust of India  |  Jodhpur 

A man murdered his wife of 20 years by hitting her with a heavy stone in the wee hours here today before surrendering before police.

Mohammad Sabir, who suspected his wife Najma Bano was having an affair, had attacked her yesterday evening as well with a pair of scissors, police said.



On that occasion, her family had come to her rescue, placated the husband, but went off to sleep immediately after.

"Today, Sabir got up at about 4.30 AM, went out of the house, returned with a big stone in his hands and brought it down on Najma's chest, killing her on the spot," Mahamandir SHO Bhawani Singh said.

He said family members woke up upon hearing Najma's cries and rushed her to hospital immediately, where she was declared brought dead.

Meanwhile, Sabir himself appeared before the police and admitted to committing the grisly act.

According to Mahamandir police, the couple had been wed for 20 years and had two daughters and a son.

"But the relations between them had started getting strained for some time as Sabir suspected her of having an affair, according to the family members. Over the past few months, there were several incidents of domestic violence as well," the SHO said.

"We have registered a case against him on the complaint of the victim's brother and have started investigation," he said.
