After the fight, the husband asked the brother-sister duo to sleep outside, as he wanted to be alone. In the morning, he wakes up at 5am to wash cars in the society. On Sunday as he did not wake up, the woman went in to find him dead inside the house,” said police sub-inspector Pradeep Palande of Samarth police station who is investigating the case.
