Bangalore:�A�36-year-old software engineer was allegedly stabbed by his wife, Indu, for snatching her phone. The incident, which took place last week, has left him with three broken fingers and doctors have advised him complete rest for three months. Sanjay has now approached the police seeking protection against his wife. The couple has been married for seven years and have a child. According to Sanjay, last week when he returned to his Sarjapura Road home after a long day at work, he found that Indu was busy texting on her phone. When he went up to her, he happened to read one of her messages and he found that "extremely vulgar".
According to Sanjay, last week when he returned to his Sarjapura Road home after a long day at work, he found that Indu was busy texting on her phone. When he went up to her, he happened to read one of her messages and he found that "extremely vulgar".
Enraged, he asked her whom she was sending those messages to. But she immediately locked her phone and did not tell him anything.
So he snatched her phone and refused to give to her unless she told who the other person was. Agitated over this, Indu rushed to the kitchen, brought out a knife and stabbed his left hand, Sanjay said.
The attack left him in excruciating pain and he screamed out for help. Hearing this, his neighbours came to his rescue and took him to a private hospital where he underwent surgery for his three broken fingers.
Sanjay told Mirror that he was shocked to see that his marriage had taken a violent turn. He said he now fears for his life.
"We have had issues before but I have always been extremely patient in our marriage because of our child. But now I fear my wife will stab me to death," Sanjay said.
However Indu has a given a different version to the police. She told the police that her husband beat her severely with a frying pan as she delayed serving him dinner.
She has also accused him of harassing her for dowry. The police said that Indu filed the complaint first. "We have given them time to come to a compromise or face arrest," said an investigating officer.
Repeated efforts to get Indu's version failed as she did not respond to the calls by BM.
