Man Kills Wife After Being Taunted About His Joblessness, Then Surrenders

Jodhpur: A 35-year-old unemployed man killed his wife for allegedly being taunted about his joblessness on Sunday night.


The accused called police after committing the crime and surrendered.

“Around 1 am (on Monday), the accused, identified as Vikram Singh, who lives in BJS Colony, informed the police control room that he has killed his wife over some dispute. As soon as we came to know about the incident, we reached the spot and found a woman’s body with slit throat lying on the floor,” Kailash Dan, an officer of Mahamandir police station, was quoted as saying by the Hindustan Times.

The man was arrested on charge of murder.

“The accused confessed that he was not working for the last few months and was dependent on the money he received from his rented house to meet the family expenses. The couple had tensed ties for some time due to the man’s joblessness. On the intervening night of Sunday and Monday, when the couple was going to sleep, the man’s wife taunted him about his joblessness after which a verbal spat broke out between them. Further, the accused lost his cool and stabbed her with scissors on the neck and other parts of the body,” Dan said.

The couple’s two children are currently with their grandparents.
