Two of a family killed, five injured in Ghaziabad


Ghaziabad : Two people were killed while five others were critically injured when unidentified assailants attacked two families with sharp weapons in a residential colony in Muradnagar in Ghaziabad district, police said Wednesday.

Police said about a dozen assailants armed with knives, choppers and iron rods raided the residences of two tribal families residing near the garden of Ram Autar Tyagi on Rawli road in Muradnagar Tuesday night.

They first attacked the hut of Munish (30) and stabbed him, his wife Santosh (29) and their 12-year-old daughter Ayesha. Then, the criminals attacked Munish’s brother-in-law’s family residing nearby. Sanjay, his pregnant wife Raveena and two others sustained critical stab injuries in the attack.

They were rushed to a local hospital. Munish and his wife succumbed to their injuries on way to hospital. Their daughter has been referred to Meerut for better treatment.

“It seems a case of rivalry. Munish and his brother-in-law Sanjay had come from Bijnore to Muradnagar area recently. The other tribals might not have liked them. However, everything will come out after proper investigation,” said Ghaziabad Superintendent of Police (Rural) M.M. Baig.
