In a shocking and brutal case, a 21-year-old woman was stabbed 28 times by a stalker in Burari on Tuesday morning. The woman succumbed to her injuries, reported Firstpost.

The entire incident was caught on a CCTV camera. The CCTV footage shows the school teacher, identified only as Karuna, walking on a busy road as the assailant, Surender Singh, accosts her from behind. He is then seen shoving her to the ground before stabbing and kicking her multiple times.

“The woman was stabbed publicly in Burari area at 9 am by the accused, named Surender Singh, 34, who was known to her. No one came to her rescue,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Madhur Verma told reporters.

“He was later chased by the public and beaten up and handed over to police,” the officer added.

The officer said, “The assailant had been troubling the woman since a year or so. The family had lodged a complaint four-five months back and both the families had reached a compromise.”

The victim was declared brought dead at a trauma centre in ISBT, police said. According to the police, the assailant owns a shop and his divorce case was going on.

“The man was harassing my sister for a long time. He stays in Rohini. We had registered a complaint after which he had calmed down until now,” ANI quoted the victim’s brother as saying.

Police said Singh was in love with Karuna for over a year and had proposed to her several times. Karuna, however, had turned him down. It was then that Singh started stalking her and even threatened to kill her.

A few months ago, Karuna reportedly approached the local police after Singh started harassing her by repeatedly calling her on the phone. She also informed her parents and brother about the harassment.

Police said both Karuna and Singh were called to the police station, and the duo compromised as Karuna’s family members did not want to file a police case. Singh reportedly promised to mend his ways.

On Tuesday, however, he followed Karuna and stopped her on her way to school. He then stabbed her more than 20 times before fleeing.

“The locals gathered at the spot and managed to catch Singh, who was trying to flee. They thrashed him and called the police. He was then handed over to us,” an investigator said. “He has been arrested and a case of murder has been registered against him.”
