Tripura woman kills sexagenarian husband, surrenders with murder weapon

A woman allegedly killed her sexagenarian husband and surrendered with the bloodied murder weapon at a police station in Amarpur in Tripura’s Gomati district on Thursday.

According to superintendent of police Ajit Pratap Singh, Kajal Kanya Jamatia hacked Premguru Jamatia to death with a dao at their Kashipada Colony home in Amarpur.

While the reason for the murder has not been ascertained yet, Singh told, “It seems the crime was committed out of domestic quarrels. We are investigating further to ascertain what happened. We arrested the woman and produced her before the court today (Friday)”.

In March last year, a 40-year-old woman was arrested at Ramchandraghat in Khowai district for allegedly beheading her husband and hanging his head in a bag inside their home. She allegedly attacked her husband in his sleep with a takkal (traditional machete-like weapon). His severed head was then put in a shopping bag and hung inside the house throughout the night.

In November 2021, a 40-year-old man, who did not have any history of mental illness, allegedly killed five people with an iron rod in an uncontrolled fit of aggression at Ramchandraghat. The victims were his two minor daughters, two passersby and a police officer who tried to stop the killing spree.
