A 90-year-old woman was beaten to death by her husband over the reason of sharing stipend money of an amount of Rs 2,250. The incident took place in Guntur District, Andhra Pradesh.
A 92-year-old man has been held captive for he beat his wife, Aprayammma to death just over the quarrel to share stipend money. The case was filed in the Amrutaluru block, Yalavarru village of Guntur district on 2nd November, Monday.
As per the rules of the government of Andhra Pradesh, one senior member from every family is capable to get a pension amount of Rs 2,250 and the culprit’s wife Aprayamma was enrolled as to receive the stipend money at the beginning of each month. The Police reported that there was a chasm between Samuel, the culprit and Aprayamma over claiming the money. The couple had not been lawfully divorced but they lived separately since the last 10 years.
Samuel went to meet Aprayamma on the 1st of November to claim his share. On being offered his share, he left in resentment. The next day, he returned in the morning and shoved her face with his support stick, leaving her dead. A few moments later, he notified his family members about him killing his wife but the sons and grandchildren did not believe him at first.
Apyaramma’s body was surrounded with blood, later found by the neighbours. A case was later lodged against Samuel by his sons. The Police arrested Samuel and he was put to trial for judicial review.
