Man stabs wife and himself to death

May 25, 2013

A man stabbed himself and his wife to death this morning in Bongo Gewog under Chhukha Dzongkhag. Both of them were teachers of Alaykha Primary School. The incident is reported to have happened before seven this morning at their home.

The husband is believed to have first stabbed the wife four times on her nape and then stabbed himself following an argument between the two.

The couple is survived by two daughters. The eldest one is studying at the school in class three. The younger daughter is four-year-old.

The eldest daughter woke up around 7 am and immediately rushed to inform the Principal of the school. By the time the principal arrived at the scene, the wife had already died. And shortly afterwards, the husband too is said to have succumbed to stab injuries.

Police are investigating the case.

    Beware! every one, especially those selfish husband. Y do they dn’t die themselves beside killing the mother of small kids.
    Never thought about the future of small kids. ‘God’ Bless her soul.
    Remember ‘jealous’ is not love. Sacrificing/winning the heart of ur beloved one is called love.
