A man lost his life while trying to stop a fight between his son and his daughter-in-law.

35-year-old Anima Kharia of Jharkhand, India, was arrested after an autopsy revealed that she killed her father-in-law by squeezing his testicles.

Authorities said that Kharia squeezed the elderly man’s testicles so hard that it ruptured and caused internal bleeding.

Gau Kerketta tried to break up the fight with his son Bhairaw Kerketta and his wife, who were believed to be drunk.

Police said that the Kharia was angry with her husband after he entered their rooster in a cockfight and their bird lost.

The couple had to give the bird to the winner and this angered the wife.

Basia police officer Ashok Kumar said that Gau tried to make peace between the couple, but the woman grabbed his testicles and squeezed them. The man died on the spot of excessive bleeding.

In her statement to the police, the woman pleaded guilty, but said the incident was an accident and not intentional.

So far, the couple was not charged with of participating in a rooster fight competition, a sport banned in Jharkhand following several protests by animal rights activists.
