New Delhi, Aug 7 (IANS) A 62-year-old woman was stabbed to death at her residence here by some unidentified assailants, police said Saturday. Personal enmity was said to be a reason behind the murder.
Shravani Devi was killed at around 1:30 a.m. in Shahpur Jat locality of south Delhi.
Devi, her daughter-in-law Poonam, 28 and grandson Shubham, 6, were fast asleep on the fifth floor of their residence at the time of the incident.
According to a police officer, the assailants armed with knives and home-made firearms barged into the room after Poonam opened the door on hearing a knock on the door.
