A day after Simranjeet Kaur, a 26-year-old assistant manager with a global consultancy, was stabbed to death near her aunt’s home in Central Delhi’s Karol Bagh area, police are yet identify the accused.

Simranjeet’s call detail records, which were accessed by police, show that she had a three-minute conversation with her husband roughly 20 minutes before she was murdered.

Police said she spoke to her husband after she reached the Barakhamba Metro station.

Looking for leads, police are awaiting the return of her husband Manveet Singh, who is said to have gone to Punjab to perform Simranjeet’s last rites. Police have also zeroed down on several local criminals of the area who are suspected to have carried out the killing.

“We are not following a single line of investigation and are open to all angles. We are still waiting for Manveet to return from Punjab. He will be asked to join the investigation once he does,” a senior police officer said.

On Friday, Kaur was followed and then stabbed in her arm and chest while she was on her way to visit her aunt in Karol Bagh.
She was only metres away from her aunt’s house when she was stabbed, first in the arm and then in her chest.

Passersby, who heard her screams, alerted police. She was taken to Ganga Ram Hospital, where she was declared brought dead. Police said all the members of Simranjeet’s family will be called to record their statements.
