Jawan kills son, badly injures wife

By Correspondent

AIZAWL, Nov 14 - A 37-year-old Assam Rifles jawan living at Seling town, about 40 km east of here, clubbed to death his five-year-old son and badly injured his wife late on Sunday, police said.

Thangboi, who was said to be in a drunken state, hit his son Isaac Lalrinawma with a piece of sawn timber on his head, and repeatedly hit his wife Rosy Lalnunsangi, 31. When their eleven-year-old son, who went to a shop when the incident took place, came back and saw what happened, he ran to the neighbours and informed them. Their neighbours manhandled the jawan and held him till the police arrived.

Isaac succumbed to his head injuries on way to Thingsul public health centre nearby.

Thangboi�s wife Rosy was rushed to Aizawl civil hospital on Sunday night. Doctors said her condition was stable and was shifted from ICU to general ward today. Thangboi, who hails from Churachandpur in Manipur, was posted in Tripura and was on leave.
