Ahmedabad, Jan 20 (SocialNews.XYZ) In a suspected case of domestic violence, a woman was found dead and her husband critically injured with a stab wound near their apartment in Godrej Garden city (Satellite township) of Ahmedabad on Friday.
Their flat was also on fire, police said.
While the woman died, the critically injured husband is undergoing treatment at a government hospital.
It took one hour for the fire fighters to douse the fire.
According to Fire Officer Mithun Mistry, around 8 a.m. they received a call regarding a fire in flat number 405, fourth floor, Eden V of the Godrej Garden city. When the team reached, a couple identified as Anil Baghel and Anita Baghel were found lying on the ground floor with stab wounds.
