In a shocking incident, an alleged stalker stabbed a 21-year-old woman 24 times to death in full public view on Tuesday morning in north Delhi’s Burari area.
The accused, 34-year-old Surender, had been following and harassing Karuna, a teacher, the police said. Around 24 stabs were found on her body.
Around five months ago, the woman’s family had complained to the police, who said both the families had "reached a compromise". Hence no action was taken against the stalker.
Here is a statement issued by DCP North:
