According to the locals, an argument between the neighbours began on Friday over the common boundary of both the properties and it continued till Saturday.

“Initially, the other neighbours tried to solve the matter and a meeting was organised on Friday, but the families kept arguing after that,” said a local who did not wish to be named.

According to the victims, Jonali went to their house on Saturday with a bowl of hot oil and threw it on the family members. “She suddenly entered our house and before we could sense anything, she threw hot oil at us,” one of the victims said.
