A woman in Tamil Nadu’s Kancheepuram was tired of her husband’s drunken behavior. Reportedly, under the influence of alcohol, her husband physically assaulted her.

The woman often sent her children to her neighbour’s home whenever her husband assaulted her. After being fed up with the behavior of her husband, she allegedly hacked him to death in front of their kids, timesnownews.com reported.

After killing her husband, the woman went to the police station and confessed to murdering the man.

According to reports, the incident took place on Thursday night. The deceased was identified as Nowshath, who was an autorickshaw driver. The woman was identified as Raziya.

The duo got married around 15 years ago and the woman converted to Islam. The couple had a nine-year-old daughter and a six-year-old son.

Since the last few months, Nowshath had been torturing his wife for money as he spent all his earnings on alcohol. While Raziya, who was taking up odd jobs to run their livelihood, had also been giving money to her husband.

On Thursday night, Nowshath returned home in an inebriated condition and allegedly started fighting with his wife. During the fight, Nowshath picked up a butcher’s knife and threatened to murder Raziya. The woman rushed from the spot and locked herself inside the washroom. While the man was banging on the door and asking her to come out, The Times of India reported.

During the incident, their children woke up and started crying for their mother. On hearing the voice of her children, Raziya came out of the washroom and pushed Nowshath down. She snatched the knife from him and attacked him.

Nowshath suffered 18 knife cuts and died on the spot. The couple’s children called their neighbour for help while Raziya went to the police station.

The woman confessed to murdering her husband and narrated her ordeal that her husband had been harassing her even after she left her family for him.
