On Tuesday, Shyam picked up the fight that later descended to Rajshree’s murder.”

In a fit of anger Shyam went to kitchen and picked up a knife and hit on the neck of his sister. She started bleeding and later succumbed to her grave injury on the spot. Her mother P. Salla (58) also got injured in the melee but her condition is said to stable.


Her body will be sent to JJ Hospital for post mortem, said DCP Sharma.
