Karanjia, April 13: A man allegedly attacked his wife and her paramour for aborting his child in Odisha.
The incident took place at Budhigaon village under Dudhiani panchayat under Karanjia police limits in Mayurbhanj district last night.
According to reports, Rupa Hembram, who works in forest department, had married to Parbati Hembram three years ago. Parbati was pregnant with Rupa’s child. He used to be busy in his job during daytime. Taking the opportunity of loneliness of Parbati, one Phute Dehuri of the village had developed love affair with her and both eloped last Wednesday.
However, Rupa did not react as he got to know that Parbati had eloped with her paramour on her own wish.
Things took an ugly turn when Phute on Friday told Rupa that he had aborted his child. Rupa lost his cool and attacked both last night with a sharp weapon. Phute died on the spot while Parbati was critically injured.
