Since long he suspected his wife and brother. On Wednesday, when he returned home late night, and he allegedly caught both of them in a compromising position,’ said a police official.

Devender apparently lost control and brought a knife from the kitchen. He started beating his brother and stabbed him on his abdomen. He also stabbed his wife to death. But  when he tried to flee away from the crime scene, the son of his brother nabbed him and raised an alarm. The neighbours gathered in the area and made a PCR call. Later, Devender was handed over to the police.

Both the victims have been taken to the nearby hospital where Phoolwati was pronounced dead on arrival.  Rahul has been critically injured. ‘Devender has been apprehended and has been booked for murder,’ the police official added.
