Pregnant woman dies after husband slaps her

A 22-year-old pregnant woman died after she was slapped by her husband. The incident took place in their house in Beedi Workers’ Colony in Kengeri on Tuesday night.

The police said the deceased is Salma Banu. She was married to Syed Imran Pasha, a cab driver, around four years ago. Banu, who was a housewife, was six months pregnant.

On Tuesday morning, the couple were found arguing. In a fit of rage, Pasha slapped her and went to work. He returned home at night and found Banu asleep and tried to wake her up but she did not respond. He informed the neighbours and shifted Banu to a nearby private hospital where she was declared brought dead, said the police.

The Kengeri police, who were informed, shifted the body for post-mortem. According to preliminary investigation, the couple used to fight frequently. Banu’s relatives claimed that Pasha would pick fights with her demanding dowry.

On Tuesday morning too, they fought and Pasha slapped her. It is suspected that she died late in the evening. There is no evidence to prove that she committed suicide, as there was no sign of hanging or consumption of poison. There were also no injuries on the body, added the police.

Pasha had planned to attach his vehicle to an app-based taxi service. The reason for the death will be known only after the post-mortem report. Meanwhile, Pasha has been arrested and investigation is on, the police said.
