Recently, woman in Mehrauli was killed by landlord, his family
Notably, this is not the first such case.
In September, a landlord and his family attacked their 44-year-old widowed tenant in Mehrauli, Delhi.
The victim, Manju Goel, unfortunately, succumbed to her injuries.
Reportedly, the landlord, Satish Pahwa, suspected that Goel had committed theft and thrashed her. Pahwa then stole Rs. 60,000 from Goel's rented accommodation, that she had saved for her daughter's education.
