A 50-year-old lady and her male hireling were killed in the wake of being professedly hit with hockey sticks by a group of robbers in Model Town range in Jalandhar on Tuesday, police said.
The group of five to six thieves burst into the place of Sujata Handa last night, they said, including the lady and her worker Harish (38), however, attempted to oppose the theft endeavor.
The robbers then hit the couple with hockey sticks, police said.
While the worker passed on the spot, the lady succumbed on her way to the healing center.
Investigation is on in the matter, police included.
