On Tuesday, the deceased allegedly asked the accused for money to meet household expenses. However, an argument sprouted between the two after the accused denied giving the money stating that he was unemployed.
While talking to the Mumbai Mirror, a police officer stated that after her fight with her husband, the deceased started watching videos on her mobile phone.
