 A man was sent to two days in police custody by a local court in Pune on Tuesday for instigating his wife to commit suicide. This, after she was declared dead at a local hospital on Sunday.

The arrested has been identified as 34-year-old Ghahininath Ambadas Saravade, a resident of Ambika Pathar area of Pune.

The deceased woman lived with her husband in their house at Ambika Pathar.

The two had entered into a nuptial knot on February 1, 2019. They have a 18-month-old son who was in the house when her mother took the extreme step.

“They used to live in Solapur before moving to Pune. In Solapur, the couple used to have frequent fights as the woman wanted her husband to seek a job in Pune and settle family in the city. However, once they moved to Pune, the domestic scuffles continued. On Friday, the couple had a verbal fight after the man brought street food ‘Pani Puri’ for dinner and the woman said that he should have informed her beforehand as she had already cooked food. They slept without eating. The next day she attempted suicide around 1 pm, and was declared dead under medical treatment on Sunday,“ said assistant police inspector Sachin Dhamne.
