Man Axes Wife to death over visit to her parents’


A mother of two has been reportedly hacked to death by her fleeing husband just for insisting she wanted to visit her parents.
The 45-year-old victim was asleep in her room along with her two daughters in Kherkheda village in Rajasthan's Jhalawar district, when her husband walked in and killed her with an axe, police said Thursday afternoon.
She and the accused, identified as 48-year-old Chain Singh, were said to have had a heated argument before the incident, but settled their differences before they took dinner that night.
Singh has been on the run since after the attack.
NDTV reports that preliminary investigations by the police revealed that the couple had a scuffle on Wednesday noon when the deceased woman insisted on going to her parents' home, but the husband did not give her permission, senior police officer Islam Ali said, adding the family, however, went to bed peacefully after the meal on Wednesday night. It was then when he entered into her room with an axe and attacked her.
The man fled away from the spot with the sharp weapon used in the crime. Efforts are on to nab him, Mr Ali said.
The body was handed over to the family members after post-mortem and a case registered against the accused man under relevant sections of the IPC, the officer said.
