Ghaziabad: Morning tea delayed, man beheads wife with sword | Ghaziabad News


GHAZIABAD: A 52-year-old man allegedly beheaded his wife over an argument that began with a cup of tea in Bhojpur village on Tuesday morning.
Dharamveer, a daily wage labourer, had asked his wife Sundari for tea twice and flew into a rage when she said it would take some time. A bitter quarrel followed, during which Dharamveer brought out a sword and allegedly hacked his wife from behind.Sundari slumped to the ground and died.
DCP (rural) Vivek Yadav said Sundari woke up around 6am and started making tea in the kitchen. “Dharamveer woke up a few minutes later and called out to her for a cup of tea. The couple’s four children (three boys and a girl) were asleep in another room,” he added.
“After around five minutes, Dharamveer asked for tea again and rushed to the makeshift kitchen on the terrace. He got angry when his wife told him it would take another 10 minutes for the tea to get ready and kicked the utensils away,” Yadav told TOI.
The daily wager rushed downstairs and returned with a sword. As Sundari continued to make tea on the stove, he hacked her from behind, the officer said.
“Jolted out of sleep by her cries, the children rushed to the terrace and tried to save their mother. But Dharamveer swished the sword at them too. They went back to their room in fear,” Yadav said.
Soldier, the couple’s son, called up police. “My father would often pick up fights over tea. He had a habit of drinking tea at least 5-6 times a day. If my mother refused to make tea so many times or took more time than expected, he would shout at her. But I had never seen him hitting my mother. We were in shock when we saw her body on the terrace, blood trickling out of the wounds,” he told TOI.
Dharamveer, police said, sat crying beside the body until cops arrived. He was arrested and the body sent for an autopsy. “On the basis of a complaint by the woman’s family members, an FIR was registered against Dharamveer under Section 302 (murder) of the IPC. He was produced in court and remanded in judicial custody,” Yadav said.
