Bangalore: A 23 year-old woman was brutally hacked to death by some unidentified bike-borne assailants in full public view in the city, police said.
Divya, employed with a private firm, was heading to her home late last evening when the assailants waylaid her and slashed her repeatedly on the neck and face with a machete before speeding away on their bike, they said.
The bleeding Divya was shifted to a private hospital by the onlookers where she succumbed to injuries.
"We have definite clues about the assailants. We are going to nab them very soon," Deputy Commissioner of Police South-East Division P S Harsha said.
According to police, last month a friend of Divya was reported to have proposed to her but she turned it down as she had already chosen her life partner.
