Teenaged girl in love with brother-in-law kills sisterJuly 30th, 2008 - 10:42 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, July 31 (IANS) A 19-year-old girl was arrested Wednesday for allegedly bludgeoning her sister to death at their south Delhi home for opposing her plan to marry the victim’s husband, the police said. Shabnam was arrested for killing Zulekha, 34, at their home in V.P. Singh Camp slums in Okhla late Tuesday. The police said Shabnam hit her sister on head with a hammer four times.
The police said Shabnam was living with her sister for the past three years and fell in love with her husband.
“The sisters had a scuffle last night when the victim’s husband was not at home. Shabnam in a fit of rage attacked her sister with a hammer,” said a police officer.
After a tip-off from neighbours, the police caught Shabnam and recovered the murder weapon from her, the officer said.
“Shabnam in her interrogation said she had fallen in love with her sister’s husband and wanted to marry him. But Zulekha was strictly against it and the duo used to often fight over this,” the officer added.
