Thane: A fight between a 32-year-old man and his mother-in-law resulted in him killing her by pushing her off the balcony of his flat in Thane. He was arrested on Tuesday.

The 68-year-old victim identified as Kamaljit Kaur, went to her son-in-law Ankush Batti's home on Monday to enquire about her hearing and speech-impaired daughter, whom Batti was allegedly harassing.
