The heinous crime was caught on a CCTV camera.
In a shocking incident, a 21-year-old school teacher died after she was stabbed 22 times by a stalker in north Delhiâ€™s Burari area on Tuesday morning.
The heinous crime was caught on a CCTV camera as news channels showed disturbing footage of a man repeatedly stabbing the woman. The recording shows the school teacher, identified as Karuna, walking on a busy road as the assailant, Surender Singh, accosts her from behind.
â€œThe woman was stabbed publicly in Burari area at 9 am by the accused, named Surender Singh, 34, who was known to her. No one came to her rescue,â€ Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Madhur Verma told reporters.
â€œHe was later chased by the public and beaten up and handed over to police,â€ the officer added.
The officer said, â€œThe assailant had been troubling the woman since a year or so. The family had lodged a complaint four-five months back and both the families had reached a compromise.â€
The victim was declared brought dead at a trauma centre in ISBT, police said. According to the police, the assailant owns a shop and his divorce case was going on.
â€œThe man was harassing my sister for a long time. He stays in Rohini. We had registered a complaint after which he had calmed down until now,â€ ANI quoted victimâ€™s brother as saying.
This crime took place just days after a 32-year-old married woman was stabbed to death allegedly by her lover on Sunday, who then committed suicide in southwest Delhiâ€™s Inderpuri area.
