A man desperate to teach his estranged wife a lesson allegedly went ahead and killed his father-in-law.
Police sources said that the victim had been identified as 55-yr-old Prabhu Dayal, who had been stabbed to death at his residence in east Delhi’s Pandav Nagar.
The body was discovered by Dayal’s son who found him lying in a pool of blood.
Though the victim was taken to hospital, he was declared brought dead, a police officer said.
Police said that the fatal attack came about from Neeraj, who had been married to Dayal’s daughter.
It so emerged that Neeraj had fled the spot but was arrested later.
Police sources claimed to have been told by Neeraj that he got married with Dayal’s daughter in December 2016.
But, barely a few weeks later, they started having heated arguments, said police.
The matter got worse to such a level that Neeraj’s wife left him and went to live with her father.
Neeraj had tried to convince her to come back but even after several attempts, he failed to do so.
He suspected that Dayal may have misguided his daughter and that is why she was staying away from him.>
