Thane (Maharashtra): A senior citizen from Thane allegedly shot dead his daughter-in-law for not serving him breakfast, police said on Friday.
The incident happened on Thursday morning when Kashinath P. Patil, 76, killed his 42-year-old daughter-in-law with a revolver at their home in Rabodi and fled.
Hearing the sounds of the gunshots, neighbors rushed there and rushed the profusely bleeding woman to a hospital where she succumbed after a few hours.
Another daughter-in-law of Patil has filed a police complaint against their father-in-law, who is engaged in a sand supply business.
