Police said she was living with her foster daughter in a rented house. The daughter was said to be in love with a man and they had got married a week ago against Vijaya’s wishes. The murder came to light when a relative came to visit Vijaya around 8 pm on Tuesday.  

“Preliminary probe revealed the assailants had murdered her by hitting her on the back of the head with a blunt weapon. We are yet to gather more details about her family. But we have got to know that her foster daughter and her husband had come to the house on Monday afternoon and there was a heated argument between them. We are probing their role in the murder and the motive will be known once the culprits are arrested,” police said.
