A man has been accused of brutally killing his wife for playing Ludo game with another man online on her mobile phone in the Patelnagar area of Dehradun, India on Saturday, May 14.

The accused, identified as 48-year-old Changez Khan, allegedly suspected his 39-year-old wife of chatting with an unknown man while playing online ludo on her mobile phone. Khan, who reportedly felt enraged over this, subsequently got into an argument with his wife, and in a fit of rage, strangled her to death, the Times Of India reported.

After committing the crime, Khan proceeded to a police check post under the Patelnagar Police Station and confessed to killing his wife. 

“He told police that he had strangled his wife on Friday night. Upon his confession, police rushed to his home to find the dead woman,” said Patelnagar Station House Officer (SHO) Ravindra Singh Yadav.

Yadav added that the man has been booked for murder and produced before a local court.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a man in Bengaluru, India, allegedly stabbed his wife to death after assuming that she had acted in a porn movie, Latin Times reported. 

The accused, identified as 40-year-old auto driver Jaheer Pasha, was reportedly addicted to watching pornographic films. After watching a handful of lewd videos, Pasha came to the conclusion that his 35-year-old wife, Mubeena, had previously acted in a porn movie.

Pasha allegedly started believing that Mubeena was a porn actress and started harassing her while questioning her fidelity. Pasha engaged in constant heated arguments with Mubeena regarding the issue. As their conflict escalated, he allegedly stabbed her to death in front of their children.

Pasha and Mubeena reportedly got married 15 years ago. The two are parents to five children. There have been reports of Pasha beating up Mubeena several times in the past, thinking that she was being unfaithful to him. 

About two months ago, when Pasha and Mubeena attended a family function in Kolar, he got into a fight with his wife, bringing up his assumption that she was a porn actress. He allegedly beat her up in front of other family members and friends.

About 20 days before the murder, Pasha also allegedly thrashed Mubeena so bad that she had to be hospitalized.
