GHAZIABAD: A 35-year-old woman was allegedly strangled to death by four armed dacoits at her home in a village here when she raised an alarm early on Sunday, police said.

The incident took place between 1 am to 5 am in Behta Hazipur village of Loni Border police station area, Ghaziabad Senior Superintendent of Police Kalanidhi Naithani told PTI.

Samreen was asleep with her husband Asif (35), son Aatif (12), younger son Taimoor (1), daughter Nameera (7) and brother Zunaid (14) in the first floor of their house, the SSP said.

Four armed robbers barged in and held them hostage at gunpoint, he added.
