Woman slashes husband’s fingers

A heated argument between a couple turned violent with the woman allegedly slashing her husband’s fingers with a knife in their apartment at Kaikondrahalli near Sarjapur Road recently.

While the incident took place on May 4, the matter reached HSR Layout police on May 7 when Sunitha Singh (28) complained of assault and domestic violence. On May 9, her husband Chandra Prakash Singh lodged a complaint accusing Sunitha of attempting to kill him with a knife. Chandra Prakash works as a senior analyst at a software firm while Sunitha quit her job recently.

According to the police, when Chandra Prakash returned home from office around 11 p.m. on May 4, Sunitha was reportedly busy on her phone. When Chandra Prakash enquired about dinner plans, she asked him to order food from a restaurant, which enraged him, the police said.

An argument ensued and it became intense when Chandra Prakash checked Sunitha’s phone and allegedly found obscene messages being exchanged with her friends. While Sunitha went to the kitchen to avoid an argument, Chandra Prakash followed her and allegedly slapped her. Sunitha then took a kitchen knife and allegedly slashed three fingers of his right hand, the police said.

The HSR Layout police have registered both the complaints.
