Woman buys jewels with rent money, spouse kills her in Bengaluru | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: A 40-year-old autorickshaw driver was arrested by Siddapura police on the charge of murdering his 35-year-old wife on Tuesday during a household quarrel over their rent payment.
Shaik Farooq, a resident of Dayanandanagar in Jayanagar 1st block, allegedly murdered his wife, Naziya, as she had used the money meant for rent to buy imitation jewellery that she wanted to sell during Diwali. A preliminary probe has revealed that Farooq had given Rs 6,500 to Naziya on Monday morning and asked her to pay the house rent.
But Naziya thought she could make a profit if she purchased artificial or imitation jewels in bulk and sold them during Diwali. She spent the Rs 6,500 on the jewellery.
Farooq returned home by 8 pm and asked Naziya about the payment of rent.
“Naziya told Farooq that she had purchased imitation jewellery and will pay the rent in two days. Farooq got angry and this led to a clash between the couple. Farooq punched her in the face and banged her head against the wall in a fit of rage. She collapsed on the floor and their daughter informed Naziya’s mother. They rushed Naziya to a nearby hospital, where she breathed her last on Tuesday,” a police officer said.
Siddapura police registered a case of murder based on a complaint filed by Naziya’s mother Imtiyaz Bi. Farooq and was produced before the court, which remanded him in judicial custody.
