Rajasthan School Topper Kills Husband for Snatching her Prized Laptop


Topper Alleged for Killing Husband

A teenaged girl has been alleged for having killed her husband, who tried to snatch her prized laptop.

The girl had been Rajasthan school topper in the Class 8 exams 3 years ago. She had won the laptop for the same reason. But then, she had to drop out of school as she was married off at just 16.

Her husband, Harphool, who was 20 years old, was a resident of Kanota. He is said to have worked at an automobile showroom and was an alcoholic. His ceaseless demands for money to get more alcohol often led to arguments and clashes between the two of them.

This Thursday morning, their heated argument reached its peak, when Harphool tried to snatch away her laptop, the only prized possession she had. “Harphool argued that his wife no more needs a laptop since she was no longer going to continue her studies”, reported the police. He wanted to sell the laptop so as to fuel his addiction to alcohol.

“Their arguments gave rise to a big fight and the enraged girl picked up one of the rocks kept to balance matkas (earthern pots for storing water) and hit him in the head. Her husband, Harphool collapsed immediately from her hit since the rock was a bit heavier one. The girl then called her parents and they rushed Harphool to the SMS Hospital but then, the doctors declared him dead”, told Kunwar Rashtradeep, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (East).

The girl was arrested and sent to a Juvenile Correctional Centre for Women on Thursday.

Based on the first impression, it seems that the murder happened in the spur of the moment and wasn’t pre-planned. The girl is still a minor so it will be decided that the case against her would be lodged under which sections.

Give it a Thought        

It’s sad how a topper 3 years back is an alleged murderer on date. She could have had studied more, topped several other examinations, built up a flourishing career, be independent, with a very bright future waiting for her. But one early marriage took all her dreams and opportunities away. Plus they forced her to live with an alcoholic, who did nothing to deserve her.

If this is the story of a girl of the 21st century, we really need to think if we have made any actual progress over all these years!
