Man plugs live wire in wife's private parts and kills her for cheating

He passed electric current to her private parts with the help of a live wire leading to her death on the spot

During interrogation, Miri, a cook confessed to killing Laxmi as he suspected her of having an extra-marital affair.

Live wire

The couple, which lived with their two children, had a heated argument in the afternoon before the fateful incident.

“When Laxmi was washing clothes in the bathroom, Miri went inside and started beating her. When she fell unconscious, Miri passed electric current to her private parts with the help of a live wire leading to her death on the spot,” Mr. Jagat the police spokesman said.

Confrontation

Miri then called his in-laws and said that Laxmi had fallen ill, Jagat said, adding that the accused then hired a van and took the body to his native village Khajri in the neighbouring Mungeli district.

Later, Miri told his in-laws that Laxmi had died due to the illness. His in-laws confronted him when they saw Laxmi’s body and informed the police.

A police team reached the village and took Miri into custody, Jagat said.
