Man hurt in tiff over dinner

Angry with his wife for not cooking dinner, a man ended up injuring himself when he hit her and she held a knife to defend herself.

The incident occurred in HSR Layout on May 4. The couple hails from North India.
Ravi Kumar, who is a senior analyst at a private company, came home around 11 pm. He found his wife busy with her mobile phone. He went into the kitchen and realised she hadn’t cooked dinner. He confronted her and the couple quarrelled.

Then in a fit of rage, she darted into the kitchen. He followed her and hit her. She suddenly took out a knife and held it to him. Kumar tried to hit her again but was gashed by the knife. He went to a hospital and got himself treated as an outpatient. The couple continued to quarrel.

The woman approached the jurisdictional HSR Layout police on May 7 and lodged a complaint, accusing her husband of physically assaulting her.

Kumar lodged a counter complaint against her. A senior police officer said that both the complaints had been registered but the couple’s parents had arrived in Bengaluru and asked them to reconcile.

According to police, the woman had quit her job recently and was currently unemployed.
