A case has been reported from Bagru Police station area in Jaipur, Rajasthan during early hours of January 19, where a woman murdered her husband after a fight between the couple.

His wife Mamta Devi had cooked dinner for him but he insisted on going out to have non-vegetarian food.

This triggered an argument between them. When the husband started thrashing her, the woman picked up a hammer and hit the husband on the head and other parts of the body. She confessed that she was in rage and thus hit him hard.
