Lakshmi’s addiction to social media was so bad that she didn’t cook meals, she never did any household chores, never sat with her family. She used to spend hours on social media. Whenever her husband asked her to show her Social Media profile she wouldn’t let him see. Hariom suspected that his wife was having an affair online.

Hariom who was 35-year-old used to run a Computer repair shop in IMT Manesar. He was arrested and produced in the court, which sent him to two days remand. He’s charged with IPC Section 302 for Murder.

They both got married in 2006 and had two kids. Things were fine initially, then Hariom got his wife a smartphone. “She completely changed after that. She ignored me and the kids. It was like we didn’t exist for her. She never helped our children with homework, neither she cooked for us. I had to send my kids to boarding school. I thought she will get bored soon but her addiction just got worse with time.” Says Hariom the accused.

For now, Hariom is in judicial custody and his father-in-law has charged him with Murder.
