In what may seemed like a case of husband-wife scuffle which took an ugly turn, a 28-yr-old woman was found lying in a pool of blood with stab wounds while her husband was found lying unconscious on the floor in Mawngap, located just few kilometers away from Shillong.
The incident took place on Sunday afternoon. It is suspected that the woman was stabbed by her husband. When the 108 Ambulance arrived on the scene that evening, the woman was conscious with laceration of right thumb and elbow and stab wound at the right lower abdomen intestine. While the husband was found in an unconscious state.
According to the police, both husband and wife have been hospitalized and while the condition of the woman is still critical, the husband is out of danger. “We are yet to find out the reason behind the incident and we are yet to interrogate the couple as both of them are still undergoing treatment,” said East Khasi Hills SP, Davis NR Marak today.
It is suspected to be a case of domestic violence which took a bloody turn.
It may be reminded that on July 13, another similar case was reported in Lower Lachumiere, Shillong where one person identified as John Marak stabbed a woman with a knife and pushed her and her daughter and hit the other person with a water pipe causing severe injuries.
