The boy woke up to screams and found that his father was stabbing his mother with a knife.

Mumbai/Dec 6: A man committed suicide after allegedly killing his wife in front of his son at the famous hill station of Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra, the police said on Thursday.

Anil Shinde, 34, a driver by profession, his wife Seema, 30, and their 11-year-old son were visiting the hill station located in Satara district on Wednesday, the police said.

After returning to their hotel room, the couple apparently had a heated argument after their son went to sleep, said a police officer.

Police took the couple to a nearby hospital where they were declared dead.

A case of murder and suicide was registered and autopsy reports were awaited, the officer said, adding that the exact cause of the altercation between the couple was being ascertained. (PTI)
