Balasore: In a heart-wrenching incident, a man killed his wife in front of her 5-year daughter and later hanged himself to death over family feud at Majhi Sahi under Baripada Panchayat in Balasore district yesterday.
The deceased have been identified as Buddhiram Majhi (32) and Tiki Majhi (28).
Sources said the couple, who had married six years ago, had a verbal duel over some issues at around 8 PM yesterday. The situation took an ugly turn when Buddhiram, in a fit of rage, started beating his wife with a stick killing her on the spot.
What is more shocking is that Buddhiram, after killing Tiki, called up his mother-in-law and confessed his crime and later handed over the phone to his daughter. In the meantime, Buddhiram hanged himself to death near his wife’s body. Later, Tiki’s parents reached the house and found their daughter in a pool of blood and son-in-law hanging from the ceiling of the house.
They immediately informed police, following which the cops rushed to spot and started an investigation into the incident.
“I don’t know the reason and what exactly happened last night. But my daughter used to say that her husband was suspecting her of cheating on him. Both used to fight over the matter frequently, ” said Tiki’s mother Sumati Majhi.
