The report further informs that Prem lived on the first floor of the house, while Harswaroop lived on the upper floor. Prem used to always complain that the water supply did not reach the first floor. This was the root cause of the fight all the time between the duo. Once again on Wednesday, the brothers had a fight over the water supply following which Harswaroop allegedly stabbed Prem and his (Prem's) wife Divya.

Soon after the incident, the cops were informed after which the injured couple was rushed to the Government Medical College and Hospital. Unfortunately, Divya succumbed to the injury while Prem was admitted to the hospital for treatment. His condition is said to be critical. As per details by Police, Divya had a stab injury in the back below the shoulder, while Prem was stabbed several times.

The report informs that the victim (Divya) and her sister were married in the same house. While Divya was married to Prem, her sister is married to the suspect. The suspect was arrested and a murder case registered against him at the Sector 31 police station. He was produced in a court and was later sent to judicial custody.
