Dial M For Murder

The other day, a woman, wife of a Nepali watchman in a construction site, killed her husband by hitting him on the head with a stone.

The next morning, she went to the police station and told the police that last night someone tried to rob the couple and killed her husband.

The police, who are naturally the suspicious lot and never very considerate, even to women, interrogated the woman, and the poor woman blurted out that her husband used to abuse her and beat her everyday. The reason: He suspected that she was having an affair with someone else.

So, tired of this continued and incessant abuse, she decided end it once and for all. And she did it.

The final analysis: The poor watchman husband was right after all. The woman would not have the courage to kill her husband unless instigated by someone else, — with the promise for a better future, perhaps. (in the prison?)
