A man killed his aunt and stabbed his cousin as he was opposed to latter’s marriage with his sister-in-law, police said on Sunday. The incident took place on Saturday night when the accused, Ravinder Singh (38), along with his wife Sonia and grandmother went to meet his aunt Manjeet Kaur, 55, at her residence in Laxman Vihar.
According to police, Kaur’s son, Sumer Singh, got married to Ravinder’s sister-in-law Shilpa last month.
Ravinder, a resident of Sushnat Lok, was opposed to the marriage as he had some business-related disputes with Sumer.
“The accused had a heated argument with Kaur. In a fit of rage, he took a knife from kitchen and stabbed both Kaur and Sumer. They were rushed to hospital where Manjeet died during treatment and Sumer's condition is said to be stable,” said a police officer at Sector 5 police station.
The police said that Sumer and Ravinder had a bitter relationship due to a business-related dispute. The situation became worse when the accused tried to break the engagement between Sumer and Shilpa.
A case has been registered against Ravinder, his wife and grandmother.
