Woman poisons husband's fried rice, killing him

A mother of two, who was having an affair, killed her husband by poisoning his packet of fried rice.

Amsa, 35, and her lover Tirupathy managed to kill Ramesh, 45, reported the Malaysian Tamil Nesan.

But Mr Ramesh’s nephew Sampath suspected something amiss and lodged a police report in Tirupattur, about 100km from Chennai. 

Mr Sampath said his uncle was a healthy man, but he died suddenly on June 16.

Following the complaint, police launched an inquiry and exhumed Mr Ramesh’s body.

Under interrogation, Amsa confessed. She said Mr Ramesh fell unconscious after eating the rice.

Tirupathy and Amsa then took him back to their village, where Amsa told villagers that her husband was suffering from an upset stomach. He died at their home later.
