The Delhi Police has arrested a 35-year-old man who allegedly stabbed his sister-in-law to death during a domestic dispute in outer Delhi’s Alipur area, an officer said on Monday.

On Friday evening, Puran Singh had a disagreement with his wife Moni and brandished a knife, accidentally injuring his sister-in-law Ritu in the neck, the officer said.

Moni and Ritu were sisters and lived with their husbands in the same house.

According to Deputy Commissioner of Police (outer-north) Ravi Kumar Singh, on Friday evening, Ritu’s husband Kharju’s leg touched Moni’s leg, which sparked the altercation.

“He (Puran) got into an argument with Moni over this and chased after her with a knife. Ritu attempted to intervene, but tragically, she was stabbed in the neck,” he said.

Puran, who had fled the scene, was apprehended by a police team later.

“We arrested Singh, who admitted to his actions and stated that he was intoxicated at the time,” said the DCP. (With inputs from PTI)
