A man was arrested Wednesday, 10 days after he killed his wife for posting videos on TikTok. The incident took place in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

Police said the couple, Siddala Chinna Nasaraiah and his wife Gorrapati Suvartha, used to fight regularly as he suspected her of having an affair. He also objected to her posting videos on the social media video app. Following frequent fights, Suvartha left the home along with their two-year-old daughter. She left the child at her parents’ home and started living in a hostel.

She, however, continued to make TikTok videos, which angered her husband. She returned to her husband’s home on Nov. 14. Three days later, Nasaraiah strangulated her with a piece of cloth. He, along with his younger brother, then carried the body to a cremation ground on his bike where it was burnt.

Police began an investigation the following day after the charred body of an unknown person was found. During investigation, police checked the CCTV footage at a local petrol pump which showed Nasaraiah buying petrol in a bottle on the night of the incident. Following this, the accused was detained for questioning. During interrogation, he confessed to the crime. Nasaraiah was taken into custody and charged with murder. His brother too was arrested.
