A woman has surrendered before the Thiru Vi Ka Nagar police in Chennai, after murdering her husband, a habitual drinker, in a fit of rage after a fight.
The dead husband, identified as Ravichandran (54), worked as a real estate broker. He was married to Nirmala Devi (46) and they had two sons.
On Wednesday, Ravichandran came home drunk around 9 pm and had a tiff with his wife. He then physically abused her.
Nirmala lost patience and started hitting her husband with a wooden log. Ravichandran, who sustained injuries on his head, succumbed.
Soon after that she walked up to Thiru Vi Ka Nagar police station, confessed her crime and surrendered, said sources.
The police recovered the body of Ravichandran and sent it to Government Kilpauk Medical College and Hospital for post mortem.
