Divorces and separations are happening in India at a rapid speed, because couples today have no tolerance or acceptance, to anything which is against their wishes. However, the case below, is a step further, where a woman allegedly murdered her husband…..because he objected to her wearing jeans…!
We are not being judgmental here, but only pointing out 0 fear of laws where many women think they can get away in the name of empowerment.
The tribal couple had been frequently quarrelling over the ‘jeans’ issue since their marriage around four months ago.
Here’s What Happened
On Monday, Pushpa Hembram, 18, was arrested from Jharkhand’s Jamtara district, after her in-laws complained that she had murdered her 18-year-old husband Andolan Tudu during an altercation over her wearing jeans.
According to a report by PTI, Anand Jyoti Minz, a Jamtara Sub-Divisional Police Officer, said that on July 16, the woman reported about her husband dying, four days after he was injured when he tripped over a stack of bamboo during their dispute.
As per initial investigation Hembram’s husband objected to her wearing of jeans when she returned from a fair on July 12. Incidentally, he expressed that ‘married women shouldn’t dress that way.’
Following day, Tudu’s health deteriorated and his family members took him to a hospital in Jamtara town, where doctors referred him to Patliputra Medical College and Hospital in Dhanbad. However, the man succumbed there on July 16.
Minz informed media,
The family members reported the matter to Jamtara police today and accused Hembram of killing her husband. We went to the village to investigate the case. We interrogated local people about the incident.
Karneshwar Tudu, the father of the victim, said his son and daughter-in-law had an ugly spat over her wearing jeans. Filing a complaint against Hembram, he said,
My daughter-in-law stabbed my son to death during the fight.
Jamtara Station House Officer (SHO) Abdul Rehman said an FIR has been registered in Dhanbad as the victim died during the treatment in Dhanbad. The matter is being investigated, he added.
