Jabalpur: A 17-year-old girl was stabbed to death by a man in public in Madhya Pradesh's Jabalpur city after she allegedly refused to speak to him, police said on Tuesday.

While the accused is on the run, a video of the incident that occurred in the Omti locality on Monday evening has surfaced on social media.

"The victim, Tamanna, was stabbed to death by a man identified as Gufran (20) after she allegedly refused to speak to him," City Superintendent of Police (Omti) Rajesh Kumar Rathore told PTI.

The girl was rushed to a government hospital, where she was declared dead, he said.

CCTV footage from the area was examined, and the accused's identity was established, he said, adding that the man was absconding.
