A woman journalist and her husband on Thursday night faced a murder bid in Noida following which two persons were arrested, the police said on Friday. The duo allegedly hit the couple's car and tried to run over her spouse, the Noida police said.

The incident took place on Thursday night in Sector 99 after an argument between the two sides over rash driving by the young men.

 “The journalist said she and her husband were returning home from work around 9 pm when they came across the car near Amrapali Sapphire society. An argument broke out between them because of the (rash) driving,” Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Ranvijay Singh said.
