A 65-year-old woman was beaten to death by three women in her neighbourhood on Friday night, police said.
Dhapubai Khateek (65), the wife of Prabhulal Khateek, was a resident of DCM area in Udhyog Nagar police station limits.
Three women, identified as Manbharbai Khateek, wife of Mohanlal, and their two daughters -- Simeran and Rekha -- barged into Khateek's home around 8 pm on Friday and beat the woman and her daughter-in-law, Udhyog Nagar police station SHO Manoj Singh Sikarwal said.
The victim suffered critical internal injuries and collapsed unconscious, he said. She was taken to a private hospital where doctors declared her brought dead. Her daughter-in-law was also injured in the attack, he added.
Initial investigations revealed that the neighbouring women had a tiff for some time. However, the exact reason is yet to be ascertained, the police said.
Her body was handed over to her family on Saturday after post-mortem by a medical board. The police have charged the three women under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code. However, the accused women are yet to be arrested, Sikarwal said.
