Bhubaneswar: In a shocking incident, a woman was allegedly stabbed to death by another woman in Lane-5 of Gouri Nagar in Bhubaneswar here today morning.

The deceased has been identified as Alakananda Das of Balasore's Basta area, while accused Anita Mishra of Konark has been detained by Lingaraj police for further investigation into the matter. Prima facie reveals that the step was taken in a fit of rage.

According to sources, the two women were 'lesbian partners' and were staying together in a rented house for past few years. While one worked at an NGO, another was working with a consultancy firm, stated reports. The two women were constantly at loggerheads with each other and a fight had also ensued between the two last night as well, said sources.
