GUR­GAON: A 22-year old woman, who worked as a nurse at a pri­vate hos­pi­tal in Pataudi, was al­legedly stabbed to death by three youths of her vil­lage in Far­rukhna­gar on Mon­day evening. A case was filed at Far­rukhna­gar po­lice sta­tion against the ac­cused un­der sec­tions 302, 34 of the IPC and the Arms Act. The three ac­cused have been iden­ti­fied as Deven­der alias Devi, Suren­der alias Monu and Cha­ran Singh alias Titu. They are brothers and res­i­dents of Farid­pur. It was al­leged that one of the youth had been stalk­ing the vic­tim, Surekha, and wanted her to be friends with him. How­ever, she re­fused.

The case was regis­tered on the com­plaint of the vic­tim’s fa­ther Mukesh Ku­mar, a res­i­dent of Farid­pur vil­lage. He told po­lice that Surekha worked as a nurse at a pri­vate hos­pi­tal.

On Mon­day evening, the woman was on her way to her vil­lage when three youths con­fronted her in Farid­pur, her fa­ther told po­lice. He al­leged that two of the ac­cused caught Surekha’s arms and pinned her whereas the third at­tacked her with a sharp weapon.

As the woman col­lapsed, three-four per­sons, in­clud­ing one of the at­tack­ers, put her in a Scorpio and started off for the Civil Hos­pi­tal, her fa­ther told po­lice. As the woman’s con­di­tion de­te­ri­o­rated, the ac­cused dumped her at Sohna Chowk along with the oth­ers on the pre­text that the ve­hi­cle had run out of fuel, her fa­ther said.

Al­though the oth­ers took her to the hos­pi­tal in an au­torick­shaw, she was pro­nounced dead on ar­rival, he said.

“I sus­pect the at­tack was a fall­out of an old en­mity. I de­mand strong ac­tion against the cul­prits,” the fa­ther said.

“Facts are be­ing ver­i­fied and the ac­cused will be ar­rested soon,” Karan Singh, SHO, Far­rukhna­gar, said.
