Robbers slit girl's throat

New Delhi, Jan 28, 2013, DHNS:

Stab her brother, neighbours overpower one suspect

A 21-year-old woman’s was murdered by armed robbers who barged into her home on Monday, slit her throat and stabbed her brother.

One of the four or five intruders was nabbed by neighbours in east Delhi's West Vinod Nagar locality and handed over to police.

Sarita married Govindpuri-resident Rahul on February 22, 2012, but was living at her parent’s home at F-Block in west Vinod Nagar since December 2012.


According to police, the assailant barged into the ground floor of the house between 4 pm and 5.30 pm when she was with her 15-year-old brother, Manish.

Her mother Munni Devi and sister-in-law Shweta told police that they left home to visit a doctor at around 4 pm.

“They found the robbers inside when they returned at around 5.30 pm,” said a police officer. They raised an alarm and the assailants tried to escape, he added.

Munni managed to catch hold of one of the robbers, but he dragged her outside the house. He was overpowered by neighbours.

Sources said the youth was beaten up before being handed over to police. He was in an inebriated condition. 

Police said the assailants entered the house 15 minutes after Munni and Shweta left. They were armed with sharp-edged weapons and attacked Sarita and Manish, who were busy watching television, before they realised what was happening.

The two were rushed to Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital, where doctors declared Sarita brought dead.

“Sarita’s throat was slit, while Manish was hospitalised with multiple stab injuries,” the officer said, adding that Sarita’s body has been preserved for a post-mortem on Tuesday.

The crime and forensic teams inspected the house and recovered a weapon used in the crime, the source added.

The motive behind the attack is believed to be robbery, but police are probing the case with all possible angles.

A case of murder and robbery has been lodged with Madhu Vihar police station.

Sarita lived with her father Ashok Kumar Jaiswal who is a civil contractor, mother, three brothers and a sister-in-law. Manish is a class 10 student.
