Father in law accused of attempting to kill housewife
Malda, 13 October, 2014: A housewife Mampi Singh (26) was attempted to be killed allegedly by her father in law Baidyanath Singh at Madhyam Kendua village of Bulbulchandi gram panchayat in Habibpur police station on Monday morning. The seriously injured housewife was admitted to Malda Medical College Hospital (MMCH). The accused fled from the village after his son Subir Singh lodged a police complaint against him.
Police sources informed that Subir Singh married Mampi of Baishnabnagar seven years back and the couple got a girl three years back. In the written complaint Subir Singh informed police that on Monday morning his father Baidyanath suddenly got excited when requested to start his two-wheeler outside the house.
Baidyanath allegedly attacked Subir first and when Mampi rushed to save her husband she received injury on her chest, abdomen and neck. A relative of the family Debashri Singha alleged that the father in law often had a tiff with his son and daughter in law. But no one imagined that he would be so furious as to attack them with sharp weapon. As Mampi raised hue and cry Baidyanath reportedly ran away before the neighbours could stop him.
SP, Prasun Banerjee said, “A man was accused of attempting to kill his daughter in law. The accused fled after the incident. We are trying to book him.”
