She then repeatedly smashed a brick into his head
An Indian daughter has alleged that her mother was responsible for killing her father after his body was discovered on Wednesday, October 16, 2019.
The incident happened in the Uttar Pradesh town of Mallawan.
It was heard that the victim had been struck several times in the head with a brick.
The incident came to light at around 3 am on October 16 when some of the locals found the man’s blood-soaked body outside his house.
Police arrested the victim’s wife and daughter in connection with his murder. During interrogation, the daughter accused her mother of being responsible.
Officers heard that the victim Ashik Hussain got married to a woman named Noori in 2004.
However, shortly after their marriage, the couple had frequent arguments. This caused Noori to move back to her maternal home where she had been living for 15 years.
During that time, she became pregnant and gave birth to a girl.
It was reported that there were several reasons for the woman moving out of her husband’s home, but one of the main ones was that Ashik allegedly used to doubt his wife’s character.
He had suspected she had been having an affair but Noori firmly denied the accusations which resulted in heated rows.
Sometime in September 2019, Noori returned to her husband’s house after the two reconciled.
According to the couple’s daughter Muskan, her mother laced her father’s food with sleeping tablets which later made him drowsy.
Ashik went to his bed where he fell into a deep sleep where Noori then allegedly tied him to the bed. She then repeatedly smashed a brick into his head, killing him.
According to the Indian daughter, Noori then tried to stage the murder to make it appear like an accident in an attempt to avoid being suspected of his murder.
She cut off part of the bed which had been sprayed in blood and buried it in the garden.
Noori then allegedly dumped her husband’s body outside their house.
After locals informed the police, a murder investigation was launched. ASP Kunwar Gyananjaya suspected Noori and Muskan as they were the only two in the house at the time of the killing.
Both mother and daughter were subsequently arrested. But during questioning, Muskan gave a detailed account of the incident and said that her mother was responsible.
The victim’s body was sent for a post-mortem. The mother and daughter remain in custody while the investigation continues.
