Husband attacked family with glass shard
On Thursday morning, a 45-year-old man in Delhi's Karwal Nagar got into a dispute with his family and attacked them with a shard of glass. While his 18-year-old daughter succumbed to injuries, his wife (42) and two daughters aged 23 and 21 are still suffering. The eldest daughter is still in the hospital but the other two have been discharged.
Dispute over milk led to domestic violence, says police
As per Delhi Police, the man had asked his wife to make tea in the morning. When he asked his daughters to get milk from the market, his wife objected and asked him to go and buy the milk himself. The husband then allegedly attacked her with a shard of glass from a window, also injuring his daughters when they tried to interfere.
Search underway for the accused
The accused has been identified as Bhimsen. He used to work as an auto driver before the COVID-19 pandemic, but sold vegetables after that with his wife. He quit working after the eldest daughter was chosen for a job at a bank. While the couple had regular fights over Bhimsen's drinking habits, the incident comes as a shocking first for his family.
What did the police say?
The Delhi Police said that Bhimsen fled the spot immediately after the incident. "A case is being registered under the appropriate section of law and teams have been formed to arrest the accused person," DCP (Northeast) Sanjay Sain said.
