In a tragic twist-of-fate, a Madhya Pradesh-based man who laid down electric wire to kill his wife, ended up electrocuting his mother-in-law instead. The horrific incident was reported from Saikheda village in Madhya Pradesh’s Betul district and occurred earlier on Monday. Following the incident, the accused, who has been on the run, was charged under relevant provisions of the IPC.
As per reports, the accused man was a alcoholic, who often got into quarrels with his wife over his drinking problems. Earlier on Sunday night last week, the accused and his wife again got into a heated argument over the man’s drinking, following which the wife left for her maternal home.
The accused, who was enraged over the ordeal and angry on his wife, wanted to take revenge. In a fit of rage, the accused man went to his in-law’s home, and connected the main door made with iron to an electric wire, in a bid to kill his wife.
Tragically enough, it was the man’s mother-in-law who came in contact with the gate and got electrocuted. She died on the spot and meanwhile, the accused fled from the scene.
