A day after a 16-year-old girl was stabbed at least a dozen times and died in full view in Outer Delhi’s Shahbad Dairy, reportedly by her lover, the Delhi Police detained a 20-year-old AC repair worker in connection with the crime.
According to a police officer, the girl was walking down the street when Sahil, who was subsequently identified, abruptly stopped her and stabbed her repeatedly with a knife and struck her in the head with stones.
“Sahil and the deceased were in a relationship, but they had a fight yesterday.” The deceased had planned to attend her friend Neetu’s son’s birthday party on Sunday. “The accused Sahil intercepted her and repeatedly stabbed her,” claimed the officer.
The police said they had received information on Sunday that a dead body of a girl was lying on a street in the Shahbad Dairy area. The girl’s body was seen by a police informer who alerted the force, which sent a PCR vehicle to the crime scene. They also lodged a case of murder.
Taking note of the crime, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal targeted Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena. “A minor girl is brutally murdered openly in Delhi. This is very sad and unfortunate.
The criminals have become fearless, there is no fear of the police. L-G sir, law and order is your responsibility, do something. The safety of the people of Delhi is of paramount importance,” Kejriwal tweeted.
“My soul trembled after seeing this dreadful murder,” AAP minister Atishi tweeted. I’d like to remind the Delhi L-G that the Constitution has entrusted him with the obligation of defending the people of Delhi, yet you spend all of your time trying to hinder Arvind Kejriwal’s job.
With folded hands, I pray that the L-G pay attention to the protection of women in Delhi. Women today are not at all safe.
Meanwhile, Swati Maliwal, Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women, tweeted, “The audacity of the criminals in Delhi is alarming.” I’m going to call the cops. All boundaries have been broken. I have never seen something that awful in my whole career.”
