Coimbatore: 60-year-old K Kanagachalam would have imagined what his words criticising his wife K Saradhamani (58) would lead to.
A resident of Papanaickenpalayam had lunch at home on Tuesday. While lounging after the meal, Kanagachalam began to complain about the taste of the food prepared by his wife.
Saradhamani did not take his words kindly and this led to a bitter fight between the two.
In a fit of rage, Kanagachalam threw a bowl at his wife, it hit her head. He may have thought that she will collapse to ground crying.
But what happened next made him regret the decision – a feisty woman, Saradhamani, responded to the attack ferociously and hurled a sickle at him, seriously injuring Kanagachalam.
Both have been admitted to a Coimbatore hospital.
Last heard: the couple's daughter has lodged a police case against her mother for causing hurt and uttering obscene words.
