Hyderabad: In a shocking incident, a drunk man killed his wife, who was in her postpartum period in Nagar Kurnool district, Telangana. The incident happened on Monday morning but came to light in the night. The accused, Jangam Kumar, had allegedly trampled on his wife Bheemamma’s genitals leading to severe bleeding, resulting in her death on the spot. Bheemamma delivered a healthy girl child three weeks ago and was recovering from the labour at her parents’ house in Bijinepally in the district.
For both Bheemamma and Kumar, this is second marriage. Bheemamma was divorced and was living residing with her parents, while Kumar’s first wife also died a few years ago. He had allegedly killed his first wife too but there is no evidence to prove that.
According to the police, 29-year-old Bheemamma got married to another man earlier and divorced him two years ago. Since then, she has been living with her parents at Vattem village in Bijinepally in Nagar Kurnool district.
Kumar, belonging to neighboring village, Palem, was also married, but his wife allegedly committed suicide by setting herself afire. However, it was rumored that Kumar had killed his first wife.
A year ago, Kumar and Bheemamma got married and were living in Palem. Two months ago, Bheemamma came to her parents for delivery and delivered a baby in April.
On Monday, Kumar came to Bheemamma’s parents place to see her and his daughter. When he called for Bheemamma, she did not come outside to see him.
Angered over this, he picked up a quarrel and trampled her on the genitals, leaving her injured. As she was in a postpartum state, she started bleeding severely and died on the spot, even before she could be shifted to the hospital.
