“We got married in 2016 and had two children. Everything was going fine for the first few years and after that, I got her a Smartphone. In the past two years, the usage of phone changed her, and she started ignoring me and the children. It seemed that I and our children had ceased to exist for her. She wouldn’t cook the meal and do any household work on time; she wouldn’t take the kids to school or help them do homework. She spent all of her days and nights to use Facebook and WhatsApp,” he said to the police.
