Delhi, June 4: A 28-year-old woman was stabbed to death several times outside her residence in Delhi’s Rohini area. The horrific incident was caught in the CCTV camera installed nearby.
The woman has been admitted to Safdarjung Hospital and her condition is said to be critical. Her family has alleged that she was attacked by her neighbour, against whom she had lodged a complaint earlier.
Police said the accused has been identified as Naresh alias Raju and has been taken into custody. He told that a case has been registered at Shahbad Dairy Police Station.
The police, however, said that the motive behind the attack is yet to be confirmed. When asked about the family’s allegation, he said that they are confirming it.
According to the police, the incident took place on Thursday in Sector-11 of Rohini area of North-West Delhi. In the CCTV footage of the incident, the attacker is seen surrounding the woman between two parked cars and stabbing her several times. As the attacker lashed out at the woman, a man passing by stopped for a moment and then walked away.
The incident comes days after a 19-year-old man was stabbed to death by four men in Delhi’s Ambedkar Nagar area. That incident was also caught on a CCTV camera.
The man was on his way to a pastry shop to buy a birthday cake for his father on Tuesday when the attack took place. Police said the victim, Kunal, was attacked after a fight with a woman.
