Indian-American muslim woman charged with murder of mother-in-law

A 47-year-old Indian-American Muslim woman in the US state of New Jersey has been arrested on charges of murdering her mother-in-law in their residence. She was arrested a day after she allegedly repeatedly struck her elderly mother-in-law Safia Diwan, 73, in the head with an unknown object in their New Jersey home.

According to the reports, East Windsor police responded to the residence on the evening of January 26, after receiving an emergency ‘911’ call. Upon arrival they found the victim lying dead in the residence. An autopsy indicated the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head. The police also said that there was no evidence of any forced entry to the home. 

The Court has set Tasneem Diwan’s bail at $ 1 million.
