32-year-old Arun was arrested by the Koyambedu police for allegedly torturing his wife Uma Maheswari.
"She had delivered a baby five months back. Arun and neighbours rescued and admitted her to hospital," said police.
The victim was staying at her parent's house after delivering a child.
"Arun, who is into selling computer parts, told his wife that he had met with an accident. She came rushing but found her husband all right. This resulted in a fight between the two following which she tried to kill herself," said the police.
Reports reveal that Arun suspected his wife of infidelity and also demanded gold from her house.
