A 25-year-old woman was allegedly killed by her father-in-law in south Delhi’s Neb Sarai area on Sunday.
Police said Shabina was stabbed brutally in front of her two-year-old daughter.
The police added that her 50-year-old father-in-law was suspected to have killed her after she refused to maintain physical relations with him.
“A neighbour who later made the call to the police had seen accused Arshad Ali fleeing with blood-stained knife. Ali is absconding,” a senior police officer said. A case of murder has been registered against him.
The family belongs to Badayun district in Uttar Pradesh. Both Ali and his son Sabeer would work as painters.
