Thane (Maharashtra), Feb 19 (IANS) A woman killed her 26-year-old daughter and then hacked off her head and other body parts in a bout of anger in Maharashtra’s Thane district, police said Saturday.
The accused, Rajratna Nadar, 50, is a mental patient and resides in Virar township with her daughter and husband.
