Unable to bear the harassment and torture inflicted on her, a woman, who was fed up, brutally murdered her husband at Ambedkar Nagar in the town on Monday. Srinvasan (45), a lorry owner, a resident of Ambedkar Nagar, married Lakshmi (38) ten years ago.
He started harassing his wife for the last few months. Moreover, he used to abuse his wife suspecting her fidelity too. During the early hours on Monday, she bludgeoned her husband to death with an iron rod in her house and hid the dead body in the kitchen.
Later, trying to mislead the police, Lakshmi dialed 100 and lodged a complaint that her husband went missing. The police rushed to the spot and took up investigation. The police suspected the role of the wife of the deceased and came to know that she intentionally tried to mislead them. The police then took her into custody and sent the body of the deceased to Chittoor Government Hospital for post-mortem.
