Delhi: Man stabs teen, her mother in Kapashera for refusing marriage offer | Delhi News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: A 38-year-old man allegedly stabbed a woman who turned down his marriage proposal for her daughter on Sunday in Kapashera. The man, who was outraged, attacked the mother-daughter duo in order to take revenge for the refusal. While the two women are under treatment, police have arrested the attacker and charged him with attempt to murder.
The arrested man has been identified as Ramu, who works as a labourer. The injured women are Ruby (18) and her 40-year-old mother Laali. Ramu was known to Laali’s husband, who also works as a labourer, and they all live in the same neighbourhood.
The incident took place on Sunday night in Kanganheri village, when Ramu visited Laali’s house and asked her to marry her daughter Ruby to him. “On this, the mother got outraged and refused the proposal following which an argument took place between the two. The verbal spat soon turned ugly and Ramu took a sharp metal object and attacked Laali. As Ruby tried to intervene and save her mother, Ramu attacked her also. The man tried to flee the house but was caught by the neighbours as the women had raised the alarm,” said a senior police officer.
Locals then called up the police and both the women were rushed to a hospital where they were admitted for treatment.
Deputy commissioner of police (Dwarka) Santosh Kumar Meena said, based on the victims’ statement, a case of attempt to murder under IPC Section 307 was registered at Chhawla police station and Ramu was arrested. Police are also looking into the man’s past criminal record.
