A man has been accused of attempting to murder his wife just because she told him to refrain from anti-social activities. The incident took place in the Bholamasna Village of Vamangola, Malda late last night.
Police sources reveal that the victim, Rulekha Bibi (44), is currently in a critical condition at the Malda Medical College and Hospital. The accused husband, Anikul Sheikh, is reportedly on the run ever since the incident.
As per reports, Rulekha and her husband used to argue often as Anikul used to indulge in multiple anti-social habits. On Friday night, Rulekha spoke out against the same; which caused Anikul to attack her with a bladed weapon.
Rulekha was severely wounded when she was taken to the hospital by the residents of the area. Her family has now filed a complaint against Anikul Sheikh, based on which the Vamangola Police has initiated an investigation in the case.
