Dwarka stabbing: A 22-year-old woman was stabbed to death by a man alleged to be a lover whose romantic pursuits she turned away. The incident occurred in Dwarka’s Bindapur area, as per reports on Tuesday.

This is one of many recent incidents of harassment and killing of women who rejected proposals. Reports show such crimes are exceptionally common in Dwarka. Latest data from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) released this year marks Delhi as the most unsafe city in India for women with the crime rate at 129.1 per 1,00,000 population.

In August this year, a teen girl and her mother were critically injured allegedly by a man who was seeking marriage with the former. As per Hindustan Timesthe 38-year-old attacker was a friend of the girl’s late father and threatened to kill her if she did not marry him. He was arrested and a case of attempt to murder was registered against him.

In another, a man in Dwarka allegedly slit the throat of a woman in July after she began ignoring him, according to reports. The woman who died was a widow and had two children.

Earlier this month, it was reported that a man in Kerala killed his female peer on the college campus in broad daylight after she allegedly spurned his pursuits. Further, in Karnataka, a man reportedly set a woman ablaze for rejecting his advances, following which she succumbed to burn injuries.

The alarm around rising cases of women facing a threat to life for choosing whom to love or not prompted an address from Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in the state assembly in August this year. Harassing women for rejecting proposals was punishable, he said, adding that potential offenders would be kept on a tight security watch.
