Bhola stabbed his wife Aarti several times with a kitchen knife in the Mall area after a brief altercation, police said.
He was arrested on the basis of a complaint filed by Aarti's family under the dowry prohibition law, police said.
Superintendent of Police (Rural) Saumitra Yadav said that the accused married Aarti, a resident of Hardoi, a year back and had been harassing her over dowry since then.
The woman had complained to her kin about her being beaten frequently over dowry but the matter was settled between the families, police said.
