Ghaziabad, March 12:  A  woman, who was hit on the head allegedly by her 18-year-old daughter, succumbed to her injuries on Sunday. Authorities said the victim was hit by a blunt object on Friday. The girl, who has been absconding since, has been booked under Section 304 of the Indian Penal Code after her father Satish Kumar lodged a complaint with the police. The 44-year-old transporter said his wife and their daughter had been at loggerheads over the latter’s relationship with a woman teacher of her school.

The girl had left home in September to live with the 35-year-old teacher. As she was a minor at that time, she was brought back home. Her father had lodged a police complaint against the teacher.

Satish was at work at the time of the alleged fight between his wife and their elder daughter on Friday morning. Their younger daughter, who was at school at the time, returned to find her mother lying in a pool of blood on the floor. The woman was incoherent but she reportedly told her daughter that her elder sister was responsible for the injuries. Satish alleged that the teacher was also involved in the attack.

Police have conducted a postmortem and are looking for the teacher and the accused girl.
