Jaipur: A 50-year-old man was allegedly strangled to death by his 45-year-old wife and 22-year-old son in Jhalawar district of Rajasthan. Both accused were arrested by the police on Saturday.

The victim was identified as Rai Singh Gurjar. According to the police, his wife Sumitra and son Mangilal killed him by strangulating him when he was asleep. The two committed the crime because they were fed up with Gurjar's miser nature and domestic violence, a police officer said.

As per the case details, Mangilal filed a police complaint stating that an unidentified person killed his father, following which the police took up an investigation. Mangilal and his mother Sumitra, during the investigation, told different stories, raising suspicion. Later, both confessed to having strangulated Gurjar to death in his sleep, according to a report by The Times of India.

The report further stated the victim earned well from farming land and cattle stock. He, however, was a miser. Because of his miser nature, he didn't send his four children -- two sons and two daughters -- to school. Furthermore, his children are now adults, but he never made any efforts to get them married.

In another incident, a 38-year-old man allegedly killed his 35-year-old wife by strangling her then threw her body off the second floor of their residence at Indiranagar in Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow. The crime occurred after an argument broke out between the accused and his wife over her parents' refusal to give money to buy a new sofa.

The accused, identified as Vineet Kumar Yadav, wanted to buy a new sofa for replacing an old one, which he had received as a dowry gift. He told his wife Shashi to ask her parents to finance a new sofa. She, however, turned down his demand. Following this, Yadav himself asked her parents to give money for purchasing a new sofa. They, too, rejected his demand. After this an argument broke out between the couple over the issue. Yadav strangled Sashi to death and later, threw her body from the second floor.
