Palghar | A 35-year-old tribal woman allegedly killed her husband with a sickle after a quarrel between them over domestic issues, police said today.
Chandrakala Bhoir, a resident of Waveghar village in Wada taluka near here, was arrested last night and booked under Section 302 (murder) of IPC, said Inspector Ravindra Naik of Wada Police Station.
The couple quarrelled frequently over domestic issues.
The man, Chandrakant Bhoir, who did odd jobs, would often pester his wife to part with money to buy liquor. The 42-year- old also used to beat up his 15-year-old daughter, Naik said.
During one such fight yesterday morning, Chandrakala, in a fit of rage, attacked her husband with a sickle, killing him on the spot, he said.
