Tinsukia, June 11: In a deeply disturbing incident, a six-month-pregnant woman tragically lost her life at the Assam Medical College and Hospital (AMCH) five days after her father-in-law severed her hands in Tinsukia. The shocking incident has sent shockwaves through the community and has led to the detainment of the accused.

The victim, identified as Sangeeta Kumari, had sought medical attention at the hospital but sadly succumbed to her injuries, along with her unborn child. The father-in-law, Harinder Prasad, was taken into custody in connection with the heinous crime.

Reports reveal that the incident occurred at their residence on Manav Kalyan Road in Tinsukia town on June 4, following a heated argument.
