Bangalore: A 50-year-old man was allegedly stabbed to death by his wife and son at his residence in Pillaganahalli, Hulimavu police limits on Saturday.
The victim, identified as Syed Pasha, a labourer, returned home in an inebriated state and picked a quarrel with his wife Salma, 45, over a petty issue. The couple’s son Tabrej, 20, intervened to pacify his father.
According to police, Syed alleged that Salma had an affair with Tabrej. The mother-son duo reportedly lost their cool over the allegation and attacked him with a knife. He then collapsed and died due to severe bleeding, said the police.
Salma and Tabrej admitted to stabbing Syed Pasha. “ I lost cool when my husband alleged that I had an affair with my son. My son became furious hearing the allegation. Hence, we attacked him in a fit of rage,” Salma told the police.
They have been arrested for further inquiry.
