A 26-year-old woman was stabbed to death in Karol Bagh in Central Delhi area by a stalker last evening, police said on Saturday.
The victim has been identified as Simran, an executive working in an MNC in Noida. She had got married two years back.
Last evening, around 6.15 pm, Simran boarded a metro from Noida to visit her aunt’s place. Simran’s cousin had given birth to a baby and he had told her aunt about her coming to give a surprise.
At 7.30 PM, she de-boarded at Karol Bagh metro station. When she was near her aunt’s house, the suspect who was following her, accosted her. He stabbed her once in the arm and then in the chest, said police.
A CCTV installed in the street shows a scooter first coming into the frame and then taking a u turn. Then Simran passing and a suspect following her. The actual stalking takes place out of the camera’s frame but people running to save her after she is stabbed is recorded in the CCTV.
Police have launched a manhunt to nab the accused. However, no breakthrough has been achieved in the case. “It is an unfortunate incident. We have registered a case and taken up investigation. We are sure of working out the case soon,” said Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi.
DDC vice-chairperson Ashish Khetan said, “As of today he does not hold the charge anymore.”
