crime

PATNA: A woman in Patna killed her 55-year-old mother-in-law by stabbing her in the head and gouging out her eyes. The woman later tried to kill herself.

The incident took place in Parsa Bazaar village in Bihar on Tuesday morning when 33-year-old Lalita Devi killed her mother-in-law Dharmashila Devi by stabbing her multiple times in the head. She also gouged out one eye after murdering her.

The husband of the dead and her son were not present at home when the incident took place.

After eliminating her mother-in-law, Lalita Devi tried to self-immolate and kill herself, however, she was rescued after locals from the village came to know about the incident.

Lalitha Devi has suffered 40% burns and is undergoing treatment at Patna Medical College and Hospital. The local police came to know about the incident and found Dharmashila Devi lying in a pool of blood with one eye gouged out.

The police recovered a blood-stained knife and the eye from the crime scene.

The relationship between Lalita Devi and her mother-in-law was not cordial for the past few months. Local reports have said Lalitha Devi was not able to conceive because of which she was facing regular taunts from her mother-in-law.

The police believe that the accused woman was fed up with constant taunts from her mother-in-law, prompting her to take the drastic step. The dead's husband Ram Kumar has lodged an FIR against his daughter-in-law.
