AIZAWL, Dec 10 - A 43-year-old doctor died after he was allegedly stabbed with a kitchen knife at his residence in Kulikawn here last night. The police have arrested his wife in this connection.
Police sources said that neighbours found Dr Laltanpuia, one of the co-owners of the Aizawl Hospital and Research Centre, lying in a pool of blood at his home with a stab wound on his right chest around 7 pm on Wednesday. Though he was immediately taken to hospital, he succumbed to his injury around 10 pm.
As the neighbours looked around the house, they found the physician�s wife smoking a cigarette inside the bathroom. She appeared to be mentally unstable, eye witnesses said.
There was no one at home, except for his wife and their three children, at the time of the incident. The neighbours rushed to the house after hearing the children�s cries.
The doctor�s wife was handed over to the Aizawl Police Station after her arrest.
