A 34-year-old woman, who hailed from Shillong and worked at a beauty parlour in Delhi’s Rohini area, was stabbed to death, allegedly by an auto driver at Gurgaon’s MG Road Metro station on a busy Monday morning. Her family alleged that the accused, 25-year-old Jitender, had been stalking her for the last few months.

Police said the incident took place at around 10 am on Monday, soon after the victim, Pinky Devi, entered the Metro station from gate number two to travel to Rohini.

Devi lived in Gurgaon’s Sarhaul village with her husband, Maan Singh, who works in housekeeping in a pantry in Gurgaon. The couple had been married for three years and had no children.

Eyewitnesses said Jitender assaulted Devi in the gallery area of the Metro station, near the stores and food stalls, and a little before the security area.

CISF and police personnel cordoned off the crime scene afterwards. Signboards usually placed around the station were gathered and placed around the pool of blood, which was also surrounded by plastic bottles and slippers.

According to eyewitnesses, Jitender first assaulted Devi from behind, pushing and hitting her. When she fell to the ground, he allegedly sat on top of her, pulled out a knife, and slit her throat.

“He kept sitting on her and stabbing her, on her face, her hands, everywhere,” said a food vendor at the Metro station. “Bystanders tried to rush to her rescue, but he threatened everyone with a knife.”

The incident took place during peak hours and a crowd soon gathered. Eyewitnesses said bystanders began throwing things at the accused — including slippers and bottles — to ward him off. Eventually, someone threw the outer cover of an electric standing fan at his head and Jitender fell unconscious. He was then caught by CISF personnel and handed over to the police.

Devi was rushed to Uma Sanjeevani Hospital in DLF Phase 2, from where she was referred to the Civil Hospital. She succumbed to her injuries a little before noon.

Dr Deepak Mathur, who conducted the post-mortem examination, said “more than 30 sharp weapon injuries” had been inflicted on Devi’s body, mainly on her chest and neck.

“The wounds were inflicted in multiple directions and at multiple depths, with some being stabs and others incisions. This shows they were inflicted aimlessly and mercilessly, without much planning or thought… The injuries were mostly on the upper part of her body… There were also some incisions on her face,” he said.

Police said Jitender hails from Uttar Pradesh and used to live in Gurgaon’s Rajiv Nagar. He was also admitted to Civil Hospital for treatment, said police.

Police did not comment on whether he had been stalking Devi. “It is too early to comment on this allegation. We are yet to question the accused because he is still being treated. It is only when this is done, and further investigations are conducted, that we will know what really happened,” said ACP Munish Sehgal, PRO of Gurgaon police.

    It is a shocking event, there seems to be a huge law and order problem in Gurgaon for quite some time. Khattar thought by changing it's name to Gurugram angels will descend on the city ? How stupid of politicians who perpetuate misrule and lawlessness by dressing things by words ?

      If such guys are not punished severely, there is a chances of increasing such crimes against women. It is election season and God forbid someone should not insert some caste calculations like the one happened in Chennai recently. Dirty politicians every where !

              Murder and rape should be confined to a brief in newspaper columns as was the practice till the 80s and 90s. What is the motive of excessive coverage of rape stories? Isn't it illation? Seems so for canny newspaper editors who give the excuse that it is their concern for society that make us give quarter page news on rape. Few men are bothered about rapes as long as it doesn't happen to their kin. The share of women reading newspapers is minuscule. Undue coverage has made women, especially young ones, mentally sick. Many young girls are in panic mode all time, despite bids not to seem so. The moment they enter a cab/rickshaw at late hours, they try to appease the driver calling "Bhaiyaa, Bhaiyaa," They wouldn't have even called their brothers and cousins so fondly. Aren't they making peace with him beforehand? I have heard Delhi men disparagingly commenting that many women in the city are rape victims or likely candidates.

                    Is there any judiciary system in our country that will punish this killer? Or is he going to go unpunished?

                      Alvi, some lunatic behaving like this should not be attributed to political parties or governments. Lack of morals due to 70 year Nehruvian Islamist communist rule in India is the real reason for this immorality, bankruptcy. Fortunately we have nationalist Modi and others trying to rectify the mistakes, takes decades to repair. If not Gurugram, the original name, do you want it as ahmadgram or abrahamgram? May be Stalingrad?

                          "some lunatic behaving like this should not be attributed to political parties or governments", but that is true only for BJP ruled states, no? Elsewhere it is jungle Raj? taking Law in your own hands and lynching done by gau-rakshaks is not lack of morals? Killing people in riots is high morals? Killing rationalists is nationalism? I get your standards of morality!

                            Is this a rape incident? The high octane jingoism and hate filled campaigns going on the past few years (from 2012) have poisoned minds. Now, people have become junkies feeding on viciousness and hatred, getting their daily dose from Prime Time TV on channels like Times Now. It is bound to get worse as people are encouraged to hate by por leaders.

                              This will happen because the police force is doing nothing in Delhi except arresting Kejriwal and AAP Supporters at the behest of Safronist hate mongers.

                                Situation changed from 80s and 90s. Unless it is addressed, the problem only gets worsened.

                                  hey stupids, what is the connection between a murderer and the Prime Minister or any party? By the way it happened in Gurgaon not in in Delhi. Your hatred has blinded and numbed your senses. Get yourself checked at a hospital.

                                      Pity You all the people standing and watching all this happen : There were so many people around and could not control 1 single person and they all will blame our Police or Government or judiciary system --- Shame on you all, I am disheartened. Sad that someone lost her life because we do not have guts to save.
