A 29-year-old woman, who was suffering from an illness, was beaten to death by her husband, police said Friday.
On Thursday evening, due to her illness, Alka defecated on her bed, which irritated her husband Sandeep (30), Superintendent of Police (city) Abhimanyu Manglik told PTI.
In a fit of rage, Sandeep beat Alka, killing her instantly, he said.
The couple, residing in New Sharda Nagar near Qutubsher police station, had been married for 10 years and had no children and the woman was suffering from an illness, Abhimanyu Manglik said.
This often led to arguments between the two and after Thursday night’s episode, Sandeep murdered his wife, he said.
Abhimanyu Manglik said the neighbors informed the Qutubsher police station. As soon as the information was received, the police reached the spot and found Sandeep sitting near Alka’s body.
Sandeep was arrested and the body was sent for post-mortem, he said.
