New Delhi: The centre has sought a report from Delhi Police over the death of a 21-year-old woman who was brutally stabbed nearly 30 times by a stalker in broad daylight.
“We have sought a fact report from Delhi Police Commissioner over the incident. Whatever happened is very sad,” Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju told reporters.
The woman, who was a teacher, was stabbed to death by her 34-year-old stalker, who attacked her nearly 30 times as passersby looked on in north Delhi’s Burari area.

More than a dozen of people looked on as Singh dragged the girl, who fell down as she tried to save herself, and relentlessly attacked her.
