55-yr-old ‘kills’ daughter-in-law with help of mother, sister

A 55-year-old man, along with his mother and sister, allegedly beat his daughter-in-law to death over a monetary dispute he had with his son in Malvani area of north Mumbai on Thursday.

The man later allegedly consumed some poisonous substance and is currently undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Charkop. The police have arrested his mother and sister on murder charges.

According to the police, the crime took place at Gate No. 6 in Malvani on Thursday afternoon. Akbar Sayyed, along with his mother Rukaiyya Sayyed, 70, and sister Gauri Sayyed, 35, abused and assaulted his son Irfan Sayyed, 32, and Irfan’s wife Ayesha, 32.

Akbar allegedly assaulted his son Irfan and asked his mother Rukaiyya and sister Gauri to kill Ayesha. Rukaiyya and Gauri allegedly dragged Ayesha by her hair, banged her on the ground, and then punched and kicked her.

A seriously injured Ayesha was rushed to Shatabdi hospital, where she died.

Meanwhile, to avoid getting caught, Akbar consumed some poison-like substance, and had to be rushed to the hospital. The Malvani police, on the complaint of Irfan, arrested Rukaiyya and Gauri.

“A preliminary probe has revealed that Irfan borrowed money from Akbar to construct his house. Akbar was now demanding money back. Because of this, there was a dispute between Irfan and Akbar. Akbar attacked Irfan and his wife by claiming that Irfan’s 14-year-old son pushed him and ran away,” a police officer said.

The police are in the process of identifying the witnesses and waiting for Akbar’s health to improve. Once he is discharged from hospital, he would be placed under arrest.

Akbar, his mother, and his sister are booked under sections 302 (murder), 323 (assault), 504 (abusing), and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.
