Police have identified the accused as 30-year-old Jaipal.
On the night of the attack, Jaipal had returned home drunk. When his wife confronted him, an argument ensued. Jaipal then started beating his wife.

Jaipal then ran out of the house and fled the area.

Jaipal’s wife said she was at home cooking a meal to celebrate Holi when her husband arrived home intoxicated. She confronted him for being drunk and coming home late.
This angered Jaipal and he began shouting at her. He then started hitting her.
The grandmother saw what was going on and told the Indian man to stop with the assault. She then started hitting him with a stick in a bid to stop him.
Jaipal soon stopped with the violent assault. At that point, the grandmother advised the wife to stay at the neighbour’s house.
After she left the house, Jaipal expressed his anger at his grandmother’s advice. He picked up a sharp object and struck her from behind several times.
