New Delhi, March 30 (IANS) In a freak accident, a 25-year-old girl died after being pushed from the first floor of her house by her two brothers when she tried to prevent the two from beating their mother, police said Friday.
The incident, the result of a property dispute, was reported in east Delhi's Jyoti Nagar area Thursday night when Shobha was trying to stop the duo from beating their 60-year-old mother.
According to police, Deepak and Jagdish live on the ground floor of the building and their mother Vidhawati (60) and her daughter Shobha live on the first floor.
Deepak and Jagdish returned to their home in an inebriated condition, went to the first floor and started arguing with their mother over construction of a room on the ground floor.
They started thrashing their mother. They even pulled her hair and tried to drag her towards the balcony.
"Shobha tried to intervene and calm down her brothers, but it infuriated them further and they started thrashing her as well. They then pushed Shobha from the balcony as they were heavily drunk," said a police official.
Her head struck the ground and she bled profusely.
"The duo immediately ran away from the spot as neighbours gathered hearing the commotion. They informed police and immediately took Shobha to GTB hospital where doctors declared her as brought dead," said a police officer.
Police handed over the body to the family after post-mortem and registered a case against the duo who are absconding.
"We are trying to arrest them and investigations are on," a police official said.
