Jajpur, Odisha: A woman allegedly burnt her husband to death as he used to thrash her and their children in inebriated state at Saruabili in Jajpur district, police said on Wednesday.

Though the incident took place on Sunday night, the 36-year-old man succumbed to his injuries at a hospital in Cuttack on Monday night, they said.

Subash Singh, a driver by profession, came home drunk and misbehaved with his elder daughter.

When the daughter opposed his indecent behaviour, he beat her up. Singhs wife and another daughter came to the rescue of the girl. Singh then thrashed his wife and the children, they said.
