Elderly man stabs wife to death, sustains grievous injuries during attack in Rajasthan

A 75-year-old retired soldier allegedly stabbed his wife to death and sustained grievous injuries in the attack following a heated argument between the two over a domestic dispute in Rajasthan's Alwar district, police said on Saturday. The elderly couple was rushed to a nearby hospital, where Lalchand Yadav died while undergoing treatment and his wife Savita, 66, was declared brought dead by doctors, they said.
