Things turned a little ugly between a couple residing in Atladara area of Vadodara city as the wife became jealous of reactions from women on her husband’s social media posts.
The couple had their individual social media profiles where they used to post on a regular basis. The wife lost her patience on October 22 and snatched away his phone out of jealousy. His wife’s action provoked the husband and they had a heated argument over it. The situation escalated when the man resorted to violence and beat his wife.
For a long time, the woman had been noticing that women used to like her husband’s posts within minutes of her husband putting up something on his social media account.
