A woman has killed her husband with a sickle just four days after their wedding. The incident happened in the village of Mukimpur in India.
Sinki Devi, 23, reportedly attacked her husband, Ravindra Singh, in their bedroom in the early hours of Wednesday slashing him with the sickle before cutting his throat.
The newlyweds had gone to bed without quarrel on Tuesday evening. It was Mr Singh’s screams that woke his mother Bhagwati Kunwar around 1am.
Mrs Kunwar told police she found her son lying in a pool of blood and called for help from family members and neighbours who rushed the bleeding man to hospital.
Mr Singh was declared dead upon arrival at hospital and Devi was arrested and charged with her husband’s homicide on Wednesday morning.
According to police, Devi said she killed her husband because she was suffering from a ‘very painful’ headache in the night.
Both newlyweds had been married before and Devi has a young daughter from a previous relationship.
