The wife of a man in India has been arrested after her husband committed suicide over claims she failed to have sex with him during their 22-months marriage.
The wife identified as Geeta Parmar, 32, a resident of Maninagar in Gujarat, was recently arrested on suspicion of ‘abetment to suicide’ following a complaint filed by her late husband’s mother-in-law.
According to reports, her mother-in-law, Muli Parmar, 55, claims Geeta did not have sex with her husband, Surndrasinh, during the 22 months of their married life together and the lack of sex left her son in ‘mental stress’ as a result of their relationship failed.
Parmar said she also discovered they were sleeping in separate beds when she paid the couple a visit when he revealed to her that he and Geeta did not have ‘physical relations’, the police report said.
‘Once I had gone inside my son’s room and found that he and my daughter-in-law were sleeping on different beds,’ Muli alleged in her first information report.
‘When I asked my son about this, he told me that they did not have physical relations as Geeta had taken a vow that she would not sleep with her husband.’
Surndrasinh committed suicide on July 27 and his family members on returning from a funeral to Surndrasinh’s home discovered him.
Surndrasinh married Geeta, his second wife, in October 2018 after a divorce from his ex-wife two years earlier.
