Lucknow: A 42-year-old woman has been booked for culpable homicide after her husband fell on an aquarium during a fight and died after a piece of glass pierced into him.
The deceased, Raghav Prasad, 45, lived in a rented house in Sikanderpur locality of Gudamba. His landlord, Ashok Kumar Rawat, told police that Prasad started beating his wife after a tiff Sunday night.
In the ensuing scuffle, Raghav fell on the aquarium and a glass pierced through his waist. He was admitted to a hospital where he died Monday night.
The woman’s parents, however, claimed that her husband fell on the aquarium while assaulting her during an argument over a domestic issue.
Police have registered a case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder and have detained the woman for questioning.
