A youth allegedly killed his sister-in-law and injured his mother with sharp weapon during a scuffle in Dhaka's Dakkhin Khan area yesterday evening.

The diseased was Sharmin Akhtar, 30.

Dakkhin Khan Police said Shafique Islam stabbed his mother Hamida Begum, 60, at one stage of altercation with a sharp weapon.
