A 24-year-old unhappy husband allegedly killed himself at his home after he learned his wife couldn't drape a saree properly, police said on Tuesday.

The young man, Samadhan Sable, a resident of Mukundnagar in Aurangabad, a city in the Indian state of Maharashtra, was found dead inside his home on Monday, May 16, an official from Mukundwadi police station said.

"A suicide note was recovered from the man's room, in which he has claimed that his wife couldn't drape a saree properly, couldn't walk or talk properly," Bramha Giri, in-charge of Mukundwadi police station, told NDTV.

According to reports, Sable got married six months ago to a woman who was six years older than him.

The cause of death remains unclear, the official said, adding that a further probe is underway.

In another similar incident, a man allegedly strangled his wife to death for serving him salty food for breakfast in Mumbai, Maharashtra.

On Friday, April 15, at around 9 a.m., the accused, identified as Nikesh Ghag, a 46-year-old computer operator with the Bank of Maharashtra, Dahisar East, Mumbai, allegedly choked his 40-year-old wife, Nirmala, to death at their apartment located at Bhayandar East in Mumbai. After murdering his wife, Ghag surrendered himself to Navghar police and confessed to his crime

After eating the food, Ghag reportedly found the dish to be extremely salty and picked a fight with his wife.

Ghag, in a fit of rage, allegedly used his bare hands to strangle Nirmala. After Nirmala fell to the floor unconscious, he took a nylon rope and used it to kill her.

Their son, who witnessed the horrifying incident, cried and pleaded with his father to stop the attack. The boy said that even though his mother tried to fight back, his father overpowered her.

Ghag had walked up to the Navghar Police Station a day after the incident and informed the on-duty police officers about the murder. Following the confession, the cops arrested Ghag under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and produced him before the Thane court.
