A former security guard, Battini Venkateswarlu, 52, was allegedly done to death by his wife Kusuma, 34, while he was asleep on Tuesday night.

I Town circle inspector Prathap Reddy said that they had taken her into custody and were interrogating her.

The police said according to Kusuma, her husband used to suspect her fidelity and torture her every day. Vexed by his repeated accusations and torture, she committed the crime.
