New Delhi: On Friday night at South Delhi’s Chirag Dilli area, a 28-year-old man went on a stabbing rampage at his in-laws house where he killed one and injured four others.

The incident occurred around 7:45 pm at Jatav Basti in Malviya Nagar where Chintu, the accused, approached the two-storey house of his in-laws and attacked his wife with a tent peg tool. When Renu’s mother Roshni tried to intervene, Chintu hit her on the head with the tool. He also attacked Renu’s father Trilok Chand.

After attacking his in-laws, Chintu dragged his wife to the terrace by pulling her hair while their two children called for help from the terrace. Shockingly, the deranged man pushed his daughter from the terrace.

When Chintu tried to flee from the spot, neighbours rushed into the house and thrashed him before confining him into a room to be arrested by the police.

The victims were taken to the AIIMS Trauma Center where Roshni, Chintu’s mother-in-law, succumbed to her injuries.

Chintu and Renu had been married eight years ago. The family of Renu alleges that the husband’s family were harassing their daughter due to dowry.
