North-East woman stabbed 10 times by stalker, dies
A woman died after she was stabbed multiple times at the MG Road Metro station in Gurgaon on Monday morning.
Thirty-four-year-old Pinki Devi was attacked from behind by Jitender, a 26-year-old auto-rickshaw driver, as she was entering the station at around 9:30 am. Jitender, who is accused of the attack, was allegedly harassing and stalking the woman.
Central Industrial Security Force staff immediately nabbed Jitender, and handed him over to Gurgaon Police, while Devi was taken to a nearby private hospital. She was then referred to the Gurgaon Civil hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.
Devi had been critically wounded in her stomach and throat and was also hurt on her wrists. Devi’s husband, Maan Singh, said Jitender has been harassing his wife for some time when she travelled to-and-fro from the MG?Metro station.
In fact, Singh was on the phone with his wife, who was telling him that Jitender was bothering her again when she was attacked.
“As I was talking to her on phone, there was a loud noise and the call was disconnected. No one picked up after that. About half an hour ago, someone picked up the call and informed me about the incident,” Singh told Hindustan Times around midday.
Hailing from Shillong, Devi worked at beauty parlour in Rohini. The accused was apparently waiting near a store at the metro station when he pulled out a knife and attacked her in front of other commuters. Jitender, who hails from Uttar Pradesh, was also admitted to the civil hospital.
