The accused entered the house of Mudassir in Aurangabad village under the Auraiyee police station area on Tuesday night and brutally beat up the members of his family, Superintendent of Police (SP) Rajesh S said.
Some locals used to pass comments at Mudassir's daughters to which he had objected on Tuesday evening, the SP said, adding that the attack took place after that.
Mudassir's wife, Bilkis (45), had sustained injuries to the head and died Wednesday morning while undergoing treatment at a hospital in Varanasi, SP Rajesh said.
