"she poured boiling oil on his face when he was asleep."
In a shocking incident, an Indian woman poured boiling oil on her husband’s face while he was sleeping following an argument.
The incident took place in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar district on January 4, 2021.
The police have reportedly registered a case against the 35-year-old woman, identified as Shivkumari Ahirwar.
Shivkumari and her husband, Arvind Ahirwar, had gotten married four years ago.
According to reports, the victim is being treated at Bundelkhand Medical College after suffering serious burns to his face.
According to police reports, arguments between the couple were a common occurrence.
Arvind was a daily wage labourer who often returned home late from work, much to his wife’s annoyance.
The couple live in a joint-family home with Arvind’s parents and brother.
Arvind’s brother told police that the victim and his wife had an argument the night before the incident.
He said: “They didn’t fight long as parents intervened and controlled the situation.
“But around 5 am, in a fit of rage, she poured boiling oil on his face when he was asleep.”

Arvind’s brother also said that the victim stayed at home and regretted her violent act.
The police have filed a case against Shivkumari based on the statement of Arvind’s brother.
