Mumbai: After a spat with husband, angry wife allegedly threw hot oil on his face and ran away.

The incident took place on Thursday late night in Kajupada area, Nalasopara East, Mumbai.

According to media reports, the victims have been identified as Shantaram Sitaram Khale (43), who sustained serious burns on his face, chest, abdomen and lower part of his body.

During the untoward spat, the Shantaram asked wife identified as Geeta Khale (35) to change her promiscuous nature and refrain from adultery. He asked her not to meet her alleged boyfriend.

Irked at her husband’s interference, Geeta took the cooking pan containing hot oil and suddenly threw it on her Shantaram’s face.

The oil spilled over the daughters unknowingly, leading to severe burn injuries. The trios are recovering at JJ Hospital.

Police Inspector Kiran Kabadi of Tulinj Police Station said the couple had been fighting regularly over several issues.

“The couple had filed the case against each other of assault and dowry harassment, which turned ugly on the night of the incident,” added Kabadi.

“He sustained 70% burns and his condition is serious. We are trying to record his statement. The FIR will be registered soon,” said the official.
