Mumbai: In a shocking incident, a minor boy stabbed his tuition teacher to death at her home in Shivajinagar in Govandi, north-east Mumbai, police said here on Tuesday.

The incident happened around 8 pm on Monday night when the victim, identified as Aayesha A. Husiyae, 30, was giving home tuition to the 12-year-old boy.

On Monday evening, the boy's mother sought some money from Aayesha to make some household purchases, but the latter refused resulting in a loud argument.

Apparently angered by this, the boy picked up a knife lying there and stabbed his tutor in the stomach and back.

Family members and neighbours rushed Aayesha to a nearby hospital but she succumbed late in the night.

The Shivajinagar Police have registered a case of murder and detained the minor boy for further investigations.

Since Tuesday morning a large number of locals visited the tutor's home and offered their condolences to the family.
