Gurugram–A man allegedly killed his wife by smashing her head with bricks after a quarrel between them turned ugly, police said here on Saturday.
An FIR has been registered against the man, identified as Rohit Pal, 32, at Sector 40 police station. The accused is absconding.
According to neighbours, the accused used to quarrel with wife Seema Pal alias Gauri, 27, often. “They quarrelled all the time — in the house as well as on the road — since shifting here in November last year,” said Arjun Singh, the couple’s neighbour.
On Thursday around 11 p.m the couple was again quarrelling. Neighbours intervened but could not end the quarrel.
“We went back to our flats. Later, we came to know about the woman lying unconscious in the pool of blood,” Singh said.
“The woman had sustained multiple fractures on head. Doctors referred her to Safdarjung Hospital in a critical condition. She succumbed to multiple skull fractures on Friday night,” Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Shamsher Singh said.
“We have recovered bricks with blood stains from the spot. Following the incident, the accused fled. Hunt is on to nab him,” Singh said. (INAS)
