In a highly shocking criminal case against woman, a 24-year-old husband allegedly strangulated his wife to death after she refused to have sexual intercourse with him. Going by the several media reports, after killing his wife, the accused also cut his own private parts.
The incident happened in Pokhar village in Uttar Pradesh’s Siddarthnagar district. The couple was alone at home when the accused Anwarul Hasan strangled his wife after she rejected his request for sex. Hasan, who works in Surat in Gujarat, got married to the 20-year-old Mehnaz only a year ago and had returned home two days ago.
The neighbours informed police when they peeked through an open window on hearing noise and saw Mehnaz lying on the floor and Hasan in a pool of blood. Police rushed Hasan to the district hospital where doctors referred him to Baba Raghav Das Medical College in Gorakhpur. The body of Mehnaz was sent for autopsy.
According to police, the victim’s father has alleged that his daughter was being harassed for a long time for dowry by the accused.
