A teen in Punjab was stabbed by his father because he tried to rescue his mother from his beating, police said today.
The accused Jorawar Singh was beating his wife yesterday night when his son Navjot,17, came to the rescue of his mother. Enraged, Jorawar attacked his son with a knife and Navjot sustained several stab wounds in the neck, the victim's sister said.
Neighbours reached the spot and rushed Navjot to the hospital but he died on the way, police said.
Jorawar was an alcoholic who would regularly beat his wife. The victim's sister said Navjot used to work part-time to help his family's finances. The accused is absconding and efforts are on to track him down.
