According to police, Sandeep Mengane and his wife Sangeeta would often engage in nasty fights. On Sunday afternoon, things went out of control when a quarrel turned into an ugly fight. Sandeep’s brother Sagar, who overheard the arguments, tried interrupting the abuses hurled by the couple during a heated exchange. Angry over Sagar’s mediation, an enraged Sangeeta went to the kitchen, took out a knife and stabbed Sagar multiple times.

“After coming into her senses, Sangeeta then tried to end her life. Both were admitted to the hospital, but Sagar was declared dead during the treatment. A case under section 302 (punishment for murder) of the Indian Penal Code was registered against Sangeeta and after she is recovered from the injuries, we will arrest her,” said an officer from Manpada police station.

A similar incident was reported from the Manpada area where a married couple, identified as Tahiyad Ali and Sufia Ali, both labourers working at a construction site started arguing. When things started to heat up, Sufia’s cousin Johar Ali, living next door, came to settle the dispute. “In the heated moment, Tahiyad beat up Zohar with a wooden stick. The stick hit Johar’s head, injuring him seriously. Johar died during treatment at a hospital. Tahiyat was booked for murder and was arrested,” said an official.
