According to police, both the man and the woman are from Badaun in Uttar Pradesh. The woman worked as domestic help. The two were engaged four months back, but the engagement was called off days ago. The man, police said, was upset over this and believe he attacked the woman over this.
“Five months ago, they got engaged. When the woman’s family went against it, he pressured her. When she did not relent, he stabbed her,” said a police officer.
The police arrested the accused on the spot with the help of local residents. Later, a complaint was registered at Palam Vihar police station.
Meanwhile, police have recovered the knife used by the accused to commit the crime. He will be produced before the court for further proceedings.
Earlier this year, a similar incident was captured on camera when a 16-year-old girl was brutally stabbed to death by a man in full public view in northwest Delhi on Sunday. The accused, who is alleged to be her boyfriend, stabbed her 20 times before repeatedly thrashing her with a huge stone.
