A 30-year-old married woman was allegedly stabbed to death by her male co-worker after she refused to pay heed to his constant demands to meet him and interact on telephone, police said.
The incident took place in Wada taluka when accused Ramnarayan Ramsumer (40) attacked the victim finding her walking alone on a road near Khupri village, said PI Sanjay Hazare of Wada police station.
Ramsumer stabbed her repeatedly killing her on the spot and fled, police said.
Both worked in a company at Wada and Ramsumer used to make frequent calls to her and requested to meet him after work, which she ignored, they said.
