Hubby hacks wife to death after failing to make love

Bhawanipatna: In a bizarre incident, a husband hacked his wife to death and attempted to burn up the body allegedly after failing to have physical relationship with her at Khemundipadar village under Lanjigarh police limits in Kalahandi district on Monday.

Sources said that Peda Majhi had asked wife Pule Majhi for physical relations which the latter denied and kicked Peda. Apparently incensed over the act, Peda axed Pule to death and tried to burn up the body after pouring kerosene on it.

Interestingly, Peda himself caught fire while burning his wife’s body and suffered 60 per cent burn injuries.  He was immediately rushed to the Lanjigarh hospital under critical conditions.

Meanwhile, police have registered a case and started investigating into the matter.
