In a shocking incident in Jhansi, a man allegedly killed his wife for not revealing his Smartphone lock code.
According to TOI, the woman, Poonam Verma, was strangled to death by her husband Vineet Kumar Diwakar at their home in Jhansi because she refused to reveal the pattern lock code installed on her smartphone.
The incident occurred on the night of August 29.
The incident came into light after their four-year-old daughter raised an alarm, seeing the body the next day.
Police registered an FIR and subsequently interrogated Vineet, who had an alibi of being in Kanpur on a business trip at the time of the crime.
TOI quotes cops as saying “after sustained interrogation, Vineet broke down on Wednesday and confessed to his crime.”
