A bride was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing her new mother-in-law who did not allow her to use a cellphone, according to police in India.
Bhiwani police said that they have arrested the 20-year-old woman identified as Surekha, after being accused of using an iron rod to kill her mother-in-law identified as Phoolwati.
According to the police investigation, Surekha did not like the fact that her mother-in-law kept taunting her. Surekha eventually decided to kill Phoolwati, after she did not allow her to use a cellphone to speak with friends.
On Friday night, Surekha used a tire iron to kill her mother-in-law. When Phoolwati’s husband woke up on Saturday morning, he found his wife dead.
Surekha first told police that two masked men broke into the home and beat her mother-in-law, but she later confessed to the murder.
