08 April 2019


Sundergarh: In a shocking incident, a woman was beaten to death and later buried by her husband over a trivial family dispute at Tikilipada village under Badagaon police limits here.

The deceased has been identified as Sharmila Toppo.

According to reports, the incident occurred a few days ago and came to the fore today only after cops received a tip-off about the woman's death. They held her husband Kapil Toppo who confessed during interrogation that he had beaten his wife to death after a quarrel.

He further said that he hid Sharmila's body in the bathroom for one day and on getting the opportunity, he put the body in a sack and buried it in the forest nearby.

While the body has been recovered for post-mortem, the cops have arrested Kapil in connection with the crime. Further probe into the matter is currently underway.
