Man kills pregnant wife

New Delhi: may 6, 2013 DHns

Carried twins, used to taunt him over unemployment

Enraged over ill-treatment due to unemployment, a youth stabbed his 20-year-old pregnant wife to death after a heated argument at their house in east Delhi’s Kalyanpuri on Sunday. The accused was arrested after he surrendered before police.

Vinita, who hailed from Dhadha village in Greater Noida, lived with her husband Vikrant and in-laws at Kalyanpuri. Sources said Vinita was nine-month pregnant with twins.
Police said they learnt about the incident after a call was made to them around 9 pm. When a police team reached the spot, Vinita was found lying in a pool of blood.

“Vinita sustained multiple stab wounds in her abdomen which caused excessive bleeding. She was declared brought dead at Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital,” a police officer said.

Quarrels

Vinita married Vikrant in 2012, but they used to pick up quarrels due to Vikrant’s unemployment. Vikrant is pursuing BA through correspondence, and the family sustained themselves through earning of Vikrant’s father Ajit, who works as a cable operator.

“As a result of this, Vinita used to ill-treat Vikrant. He also claimed that Vinita used to taunt him saying he must leave his studies and start earning,” the officer added.
They had another heated argument while having dinner around 9 pm on Sunday after which Vikrant picked up a knife and stabbed Vinita.

Hearing the commotion, Vikrant’s parents and two brothers rushed to their room, but Vinita succumbed to her injuries.

A case of murder under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code has been lodged against Vikrant.

“The weapon used in commission of crime has been seized,” the officer added.
Since the woman died within seven years of her marriage, an sub-divisional magistrate enquiry has also been initiated. Vinita’s body was handed over to her father Kishanchand, a farmer, after a post-mortem on Monday.
