New Delhi: In yet another incident of brutality, a 20-year-old girl was stabbed to death allegedly by a jilted lover in east Delhi on Monday evening, police said.
The deceased has been identified as Neha, who was working with a BPO in Noida.
The incident took place in Dallupura at around 5 pm when Neha and her male friend Gaurav were travelling in the latter's car when Devender (32) waylaid them.
Devender first stabbed Gaurav in his cheek and then stabbed Neha, who died on the spot.
Gaurav managed to escape and rushed to a nearby police station. With the help of cops, Neha was rushed to a hospital.
Gaurav told the police that he was returning with Neha after shopping at the Cross River mall in Anand Vihar. Devender, who works as a driver, had apparently been following them since morning.
According to a police officer, Devender lived a few blocks away from Neha’s house in Mayur Vihar.
Devender is now in police custody.
“He (Devender) was in love with Neha. However, she ignored him and was in a relationship with Gaurav. This enraged Devender and he allegedly decided to seek revenge," a senior police official said.
