A 22-year-old man was on Thursday killed allegedly by his wife who was unhappy with his dark complexion, following which she has been arrested.
"Farzanabano (22), a resident of Sundarana village in Petlad taluka of Anand district, was arrested for killing her husband Farukh Malek today, because she was unhappy with his dark complexion," Deputy Superintendent of Police PR Gehlot of Petlad taluka said.
Though Farzana and Farukh were married two years ago, they did not have any physical relations because the wife hated her husband's skin colour, which always led to scuffles between them, Gehlot said.Farzana used to go to his parents' home to avoid her husband.
However, she returned ten days ago and the couple resumed fighting over physical relations since she returned to her in-laws' house, he said.
Last night, there was a fight after which Farukh slapped Farzana.
Today, Farukh asked Farzana to accompany him to his farm, where she allegedly smashed his head with a hammer from behind, Gehlot said.
The police has registered an FIR against Farzana under Section 302 (Punishment for murder) of the Indian Penal Code and initiated an investigation. (Deccan Chronicle)
