A woman and her husband were held for robbing her 85-year-old maternal grandmother of gold ornaments and jewellery in this district, police said on Saturday.
The accused Parvathy and her husband Sarath, both in their late twenties, were arrested by the East police here from Thiruvananthapuram on Friday based on a complaint by Yashoda, the elderly woman hailing from Uliyakovil.
