An Indian man has been arrested after he violently killed his wife at their home.
The incident happened on Thursday, April 16, 2020, in Hisar, Haryana.
It was revealed that the accused was a policeman. He had bludgeoned his wife’s jaw with a metal spade, killing her.
Following the attack, the man called his mother-in-law, the police and an ambulance, explaining what he had done. Officers arrived at the scene and arrested the man.
The man was identified as Vikram. He was an officer posted in Jind as part of DSP Singh’s team.
Vikram had been married to a woman named Rinku for five years. They have a son, aged three. They lived in a rented house in the Housing Board Colony.
Vikram came home from duty on April 14, 2020. During his time at home, he was drinking alcohol.
On the night of the incident, he was intoxicated when he got into an argument with his wife. It is not known what the argument was about.
The row ended when Rinku walked away and sat down.
However, Vikram was enraged. In a fit of anger, he struck his wife in the jaw with a metal spade, causing her death.
Vikram’s anger turned to sadness when he realised what he had done. Upon seeing his wife’s body covered in blood, he called his mother-in-law, the police and an ambulance.
Police arrived at the scene and arrested the Indian man. Officers confirmed that Vikram had been in a drunken state.
Rinku’s body was sent for a post-mortem. Meanwhile, the investigation is ongoing.
The victim’s family told police that the couple never argued and that this was the first instance of a row.
There have been numerous cases where extreme action has been taken following an argument.
In one incident, a policeman killed his three sons after an argument with his wife.
Sukhdev Siyal had a row with his wife. He then took her to one of the rooms and locked it before slitting the throats of their three sons.
After committing the killings, Siyal called the police station where he worked and informed them about what happened.
Siyal had claimed that the murders happened in the heat of the moment after becoming angry with his wife.
Police officers arrived at the scene and released his wife from the room that she was locked up in. Officers then found Constable Siyal sitting in one corner of a room with the knife that he used to commit the murders.
Officers later found the three children’s bodies in another room that was covered in blood.
Siyal was arrested and an investigation was launched.
