New Delhi: Woman Stabbed by Rejected Lover
Police registered a case under Section 307 (attempt to murder) of the IPC.
NEW DELHI: Following the refusal of a 21-year-old woman to accept the proposal, a 22-year-old man stabbed her repeatedly. The incident took place in broad daylight in the Adarsh Nagar region of the National Capital Region on Wednesday.
The accused of the crime has been named Sukhvinder Singh aged 22 years. He was apprehended by the police based on a video captured by a close-circuit camera covering the narrow street where the incident took place.
Usha Rangnani, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Northwest) mentioned that a woman who is a resident of the Kewal Park region of Adarsh Nagar in New Delhi was attacked with a knife at Majlis Park in the Adarsh Nagar area. The incident took place around 12 pm on January 2. After stabbing the victim, the accused Sukhvinder Singh fled from the spot.
The police registered a case under Section 307 (attempt to murder) of the Indian Penal Code and began probing the incident. The victim in her complaint informed the police that the accused forcibly took her to a narrow alley and kept asking her about the reason for leaving him.
"He was my friend but recently I had broken up the friendship. Suddenly he took out some knife-like object and started stabbing me. I fell down and started screaming for help but none came to rescue me. Blood started oozing out from my throat and forehead after which Sukhwinder fled from the spot," the FIR mentioned.
Following the incident and the cries of the victim, the neighbours rescued and admited her to a nearby clinic. Since the injuries were serious in nature, she was shifted to the Babu Jagjivan Ram Memorial Hospital for proper medical attention. Her condition is mentioned to be stable in reports.
"Through technical surveillance, it was found that the accused had absconded to Ambala from Delhi," a police representative mentioned.
A team of police officials rushed to Ambala in Haryana leading to the nabbing of the accused on his way back to Delhi from Ambala.
