Sanatan and his Pushpa have a daughter and a son. Their daughter works as a domestic help in Kuchinda while the son had gone to his friend’s house for a sleepover on that night.
When Sanatan returned home, he found that Pushpa had cooked only curry but not rice to go with it. This led to an argument between them, during which he attacked his wife and bludgeoned her to death, a police officer said.
The matter was discovered after the dead woman’s son returned home to find his mother lying dead. He informed the police, who seized the body and immediately arrested the husband.
After an investigation was launched and an autopsy was conducted on Monday, the accused husband has been kept in police custody, Jamankira Police Station Inspector-in-charge Premjit Das said.
