A case under IPC sections of murder was registered and Arzu and Rihana have been arrested. Raids are being conducted to locate their family members and ascertain their role.”

During the investigation, police found that Parveen’s and Rihana’s husbands work as labourers near the house, and the fight broke out because Parveen’s husband did not call the latter for work.
