Kolhapur: Nearly a week after reports emerged of a woman who committed suicide in grief over her mother-in-law’s demise, it has now surfaced that she was pushed off the balcony by her husband- who was enraged over her rejoicing on his mother’s death.

Reportedly, the woman rejoiced when her mother-in-law passed away, which angered her husband so much that he allegedly pushed her off the balcony and passed it off as suicide later.

49-year-old Shubhangi S Lokhande was earlier believed to have taken her life after losing her 70-year-old mother-in-law in a battle to cancer.

But an investigation in the case revealed that her husband Sandeep Lokhande was livid after seeing his wife displaying abject joy over his mother’s demise. According to a news report in News18, during an interrogation, he confessed to having killed her.

“After the ailing Malati (70) died Saturday morning, Shubhangi became happy. She couldn’t hide her feelings. Sandeep was enraged by this behaviour of his wife and killed her the same day,” a police official said.

Sandeep Lokhande has been arrested while his two children have been sent to his father’s custody.
