A husband in India killed himself because of a lack of sex before his grieving wife was arrested on suspicion of ‘abetment to suicide’.
Geeta Parmar, 32, a resident of Maninagar in Gujarat, was taken in by police following a complaint filed by her late husband’s mother-in-law.
Muli Parmar, 55, claims that Geeta did not have sex with her husband, Surndrasinh, during the 22 months of their married life together.
Muli said the lack of sex left her son in ‘mental stress’ as their relationship failed.
She discovered they were sleeping in separate beds after paying a visit to the married couple’s home.
Surndrasinh revealed to his mother that he and Geeta did not have ‘physical relations’, the police report said.
Muli claims that Geeta had ‘taken a vow’ that she would not engage in intercourse with her husband.
She says this left him in ‘mental stress’, Times of India reported.
The couple’s married life descended into chaos, with the pair frequently fighting before Geeta moved into her parents’ home.
After attending a funeral on July 27, family members returned to Surndrasinh’s home where they discovered he had committed suicide.
‘Once I had gone inside my son’s room and found that he and my daughter-in-law were sleeping on different beds,’ Muli alleged in her first information report.
‘When I asked my son about this, he told me that they did not have physical relations as Geeta had taken a vow that she would not sleep with her husband.’
The railway employee married Geeta, his second wife, in October 2018 following a divorce two years earlier.
The case is under investigation by Shaherkotda police in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
