In a shocking incident, a newly-married woman in Tamil Nadu’s Cuddalore allegedly killed her husband as she was upset that he was not handsome, police said on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old woman, who got married about a week ago, allegedly murdered her husband by smashing his head with a grinding stone, said police. She allegedly attacked her husband fatally on Monday night in their house following a quarrel.
The woman started hating her husband, a wood sculptor in his mid 20s, because her friends and relatives said he was not handsome and not a match for her, police said.
Though the woman came out and cried saying someone has murdered her husband, police after investigations arrested her on Tuesday on the charge of killing him.
She was produced before a local court which remanded her to judicial custody.
