Wife held for torturing man
Guwahati: Police on Thursday apprehended a woman for allegedly torturing her husband following marital discord.
The incident took place in Ananda Nagar in Noonmati here.
"Some neighbours called the emergency helpline when they heard the man, Jamser Ali, shouting for help. He had serious burn injuries and we immediately sent him to Gauhati Medical College and Hospital. When we reached the spot the wife was not there and we managed to detain her near the hospital," assistant commissioner of police (Noonmati) Purabi Mazumdar said.
She said the 35-year-old woman had earlier filed a torture case against Ali. "The case was lodged last year under Section 498 (husband or relative of husband subjecting a woman to cruelty) of IPC."
