Rewa, May 20 (IANS) A man in this district of Madhya Pradesh has been hospitalised after his wife put Fevikwik glue in both his eyes while he was asleep, police and doctors said.
Santosh Vishwakarma of Karahiya village has been under treatment since Thursday in the Rewa district hospital with both eyelids glued shut, Civil Surgeon S.P. Singh Parihar said.
The doctors are applying heat on the glued up eyelids to loosen them, he said.
There were frequent bickerings between Vishwakarma, a motor mechanic by occupation, and his wife Vijayalakshami, Chorhata police station in-charge R.K. Pande told IANS on Friday.
He woke up on Thursday morning and realised that he could not open his eyes.
When he began shouting, the neighbours called the police. In the meantime his wife ran away from home.
It transpired then that she had put Fevikwik, which is a “super glue” used to fix broken plastic, on his eyes when he was deep in sleep on Wednesday night, Pande said.
No complaint against the missing wife has been filed so far, he added.
