BENGALURU: A man has been arrested by the Bengaluru police for allegedly attacking her with an electric iron and a knife. The incident occurred in the early hours of Sunday but came to light on Tuesday.

As per the FIR registered by the woman, Jacinta (name changed), a 26-year-old resident of Lingarajpuram, her husband Dilip Kumar (32) came home drunk at around 11 am on Saturday night and slept. He woke up at 2 am and demanded that his wife get jewellery from her mother’s place. When she refused, he first beat her with an electric cord and then inflicted burns on her private parts with an electric iron, according to the FIR. The woman was hospitalised with severe injuries.

Dilip Kumar was arrested by the Banasawadi police on Sunday. However, deputy commissioner of police (east) Ajay Hilori said the accused, in a drunken state, assaulted his wife and threw a hot iron at her stomach, due to which she suffered burn injuries. He denied that the woman’s private parts were burnt.

The man has been booked under Section 326 of the Indian Penal Code (voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means).
