Tired of her husband’s alleged philandering ways, a 48-year-old resident of Greater Kailash part I stabbed him in his stomach on Monday.
The police said the incident happened when the accused got into yet another fight with her husband over his alleged extra-marital affair.
The police have arrested Sunita Kumar, who is a housewife. Her husband Pratap Kumar (50) is in the hospital and recuperating.
“The incident was triggered when on Sunday evening Sunita saw her husband with his female companion,” said a senior police officer.
The police said the husband and wife got into a heated argument after that. Kumar wanted to divorce his wife and get married to his female friend, police said.
“Earlier too, the victim had asked his wife for a divorce. This time the fight got out of hand and in a fit of rage she took the kitchen knife and stabbed him in the abdomen,” added the officer.
The police said their neighbours heard the commotion and called the police.
Sunita did not flee from the house spot after the incident and when the police arrived, she was arrested.
During interrogation, the police said Sunita told them than she recently found out about her husband's extramarital affair.
“Initially she tried to talk her husband out of it but he continued with his extramarital affair. They fought over this almost every day. She also said that for the last few days her husband had been talking of giving her a divorce,” added the officer.
The police have registered a case of attempt to murder against the accused and seized the knife used in the crime.
