Man kills wife for wearing jeans and T-shirt

Pune: A 21-year-old woman was allegedly killed by her husband for violating his “dress code” as she continued to wear jeans and T-shirt which he disapproved, police said today.

The accused, a 24-year-old man identified as Ranjit Nishad, is absconding.

After repeated arguments with his wife, Pooja, over wearing jeans and T-shirt a few days back, the accused allegedly assaulted and killed the woman, locked the house and fled, police said quoting the neighbours.

The crime came to light yesterday after neighbours smelt odour of the decomposed body emanating from the house in Gultekadi area.

The Swargate Police have registered the case and launched a search for the accused.
