Ramgarh: A gruesome murder incident has sent shock waves across this district in Jharkhand.

A 31-year-old college student was on Wednesday found murdered outside her institute with her head smashed and one of her hand cut off, as per PTI.

Sonali Murmu, a B.Ed student, was shot dead right outside her college here.

As per police, the woman was hit on the head at least 20 times with a sharp object.

Reports say a man named Suken Mandal had been stalking Murmu for several years. The harassment did not end even after she got married.

According to NDTV, Murmu knew Mandal from her school days.

Mandal’s involvement is highly suspected as he was obsessed with her and has been absconding since the murder, M Tamilvanan, Superintendent of Police, said.

Sonali’s husband Chitranjan Tudu used to drop her to college which is about 15 km from her residence, every day on a motorcycle. Yesterday, her brother-in-law Naresh had dropped her to college instead.

Tudu was reported as saying that Mandal had threatened them at the time of their marriage.
