Man arrested for killing wife after she refused to have sex with him, police say

A man has been arrested for killing his wife after she refused to have sex with him, it has been reported.

Sanjiv Kumar, 35, allegedly strangled wife Suman, 30, after they had a fight in their home in the Indian state of Haryana.

Police were called and Mr Kumar, a painter, apparently confessed to the crime soon afterward.

“She had been refusing sex for a while. On Tuesday, she refused again, which irritated him and he strangled her. We have arrested him,” police officer Ramesh Jaglan told the BBC.

Suman had reportedly avoided having sex with Mr Kumar as he was not well, and had been diagnosed with symptoms of dengue fever.

Station house officer Ramesh Kumar said that the accused had tried to force himself on his wife.

“She [Suman] scolded the accused for trying to force himself on her, Sanjiv lost his cool and strangled her, leading to her death,” Mr Kumar told the Times of India.

The couple had been married for a decade and have two children together.

A murder investigation has now been launched against Mr Kumar and six members of his family.
