Sunday, February 4, 2018

A techie attempted to kill his wife for giving birth to a girl child just a week ago at Penamaluru.

According to police sources, Rajaratnam married Prasanthi three years ago and the couple have a son. Upset over the birth of the girl, Rajaratnam allegedly tried to administer shock through an electric wire coiled to his wife’s hand on Friday night while she was asleep and switched on power. When she raised an alarm due to the shock, he fled.

The Central Zone Assistant Commissioner of Police N.Satyanandam said that a case has been booked against the accused and his father, who were absconding. A case under Section 498(A) of IPC was registered and special teams have been constituted to nab them.
