In a sensational incident at Dholpur in North Assam’s Lakhimpur district, a woman killed her husband and surrendered before the police carrying his severed head.
Police officials said the incident took place in Kathani-Mazagaon in Dholpur, 60 kms from here on Tuesday night when Guneswari Borkotoky stabbed her husband Mudhiram Borkotoky in a fit of rage.
The woman has been distressed by the daily act of domestic violence by her husband who always comes home in an inebriated state.
On that night too, Mudhiram Borkotoky treated in the same manner he has been used to and Guneswari retaliated with a dao severing his head.
Later she wrapped the severed head in a plastic bag and carried it walking 5 kilometres to the Dholpur police station and surrendered.
Guneswari informed the police that she killed her husband in a fit of rage ‘distressed’ over the frequent domestic violence.
“I had no other choice but to kill him,” admitted Guneswari before the police.
A mother of five children, Guneswari, who is in her mid-forties said, “He (Mudhiram Borkotoky) often came home drunk and was an offender. I had been bearing him for years and should have separated from him years back. But due to our children, I sacrificed and stayed back. However, his activities were intolerable. Today (on 28th May night) he attempted to kill me, so in an act of self-defence I stabbed him.”
“I have brought his severed head to the police. Now it is up to them, I will accept whatever decision is taken,” the woman added.
Meanwhile, the police took Guneswari in their custody and started investigation into the case.
