Jammu: An ex-serviceman allegedly stabbed his wife to death before committing suicide by hanging himself from a tree in Makhanpur village Jammu, the police said today.
Kuldeep Singh (55) attacked his wife, Balvinder Kaur, with a sharp-edged weapon yesterday following a heated argument with her over some issue, they said.
Singh locked his son and daughter-in-law in a room before attacking his wife and fled soon after, the police said.
Kaur was rushed to the GMC hospital by her son and neighbours, where she was declared brought dead, they said.
