NEW DELHI: A 22-year-old pregnant woman was murdered by her husband as she couldn’t make him perfectly round chappatis.
The incident occurred in northwest Delhi’s Jahangirpuri on Saturday night but it came to light early Sunday morning. Around 4am, the victim’s brother called up the police and told them that his sister was lying unconscious in her flat while her four-year-old daughter was locked up in a room.
The woman, Simran, was taken to a hospital where she was declared brought dead. She was four months pregnant. The husband was nowhere to be found.
The daughter told cops that her parents would often quarrel because of her mother’s chappatis. “My mother was a good cook but the chappati shape angered my father,” she said.
