Bizarre : Fourth wife of a man demands third one be divorced, sets her on fire
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. A man named Saleem who works as a security guard in a housing society in Bhopal is battling living hell as his third wife, who was set ablaze by the fourth one, is fighting for her life, reports The Times of India.
Saleem’s third wife Shabnam has been admitted to the city’s Hamidia hospital and is said to be in a critical condition with 50% burns.
The accused (the fourth wife Ayesha) has been booked and arrested by the Nishatpura police station officials after Shabnam issued a statement that she had been bathed in kerosene by Ayesha and her mother Waseema and set ablaze on Thursday (January 4). Waseema has been arrested too.
Ayesha had demanded that Shabnam is divorced from the husband but the latter refused. That allegedly led to the youngest wife attempting to murder.
