A 26-year-old woman was brutally stabbed to death by her ‘social media friend’ in front of her daughter in Gyansheel Super City area of Lasudia in Indore on Thursday evening.
The gruesome killing was captured on a CCTV camera installed at a nearby shop. It shows the woman, Priya Agarwal, bleeding from neck and face after she was stabbed multiple times using scissors. Meanwhile, the accused was captured on the camera hopping on to his scotty and fleeing.
According to the police, the accused – identified as Sourabh alias Golu Gotre — was drunk and allegedly murdered the woman for “not talking to him properly” and for “misbehaving” with him.
The accused had asked Priya to meet him at a vacant plot in the area. “When she arrived with her daughter, Sourabh got into an altercation with her and attacked her with a pair of scissors on her neck and face in front of her daughter,” said ASP Rajesh Raghuwanshi.
He added, “The woman’s husband, Shyam Agarwal, told us that she had met the accused through social sites a year ago and he knew about their affair”.
Swinging into action, the passer-by and shopkeepers took the victim to the hospital where she was declared brought dead by the doctors.
The police constituted a three-member team to track Sourabh and arrested him after a couple of hours.
