HYDERABAD: A 45-year-old labourer was throttled and set ablaze at Jagadgirigutta in Telangana by his two wives who were vexed of being beaten up by their husband every day.

The deceased has been identified as G Mahender, a resident of Jagadgirigutta. The accused, his two wives, Padma (38) and Jyothi (33), lived with him in the same house along with five children.
