Belagavi: Athani police have secured a husband who allegedly opened two rounds of fire into the air after his wife refused to come with him to his house.
The accused has been identified as Shivanand, a resident of Athani. The police said that Shivanand and his wife were having issues and they used to quarrel, and his wife had gone to her parent’s house after a recent fight. On Sunday, Shivanand went to his in-laws’ house in Athani and asked his wife to come with him to his house. The wife allegedly refused to go with him and wanted to stay with her parents.
The accused was upset by the reply and allegedly fired two rounds of fire into the air from his licenced revolver and threatened that he would shoot her if she failed to listen to him. The parents of the woman pacified the son-in-law and sent him home, saying that she would come to his house. Later, a case was booked, and the police secured the accused.
