A 28-year-old man stabbed his brother to death for allegedly harassing his mother and a rickshaw-puller killed his wife suspecting an extra-marital affair in separate incidents over the past 24 hours in the city.
Police said Abdul used to harass and abuse his mother over a property dispute involving an ancestral house in Laxmi Park colony. "On Wednesday night, he had a heated argument with his mother at her home in West Delhi's Nihal Vihar. Abdul demanded his share of the property. When he was rebuffed by his mother, he started abusing her," a police officer said.
"As his elder brother, Irfan, tried to calm him, Abdul started abusing him too. An enraged Irfan stabbed Abdul with a knife several times in the the head and abdomen. Abdul bled to death," he said.
Irfan, a labourer, has been arrested. "Abdul had earlier threatened his brother. On that occasion, he was thrown out of the house by his mother," the officer said.
In the second incident, rickshaw-puller Devender allegedly clobbered his 26-year-old wife with a stone following an argument in the Shahabad Dairy area of Outer Delhi, police said.
Police said he suspected his wife, Phoolwati, of having an extra-marital affair. The body bore multiple injury marks. The man has been arrested, an officer said.
