An estranged lover killed his 20-year-old girlfriend by repeatedly stabbing her face and throat with a screwdriver, and then smashed her head with a stone till she died, on Wednesday afternoon. Police arrested the accused Shailesh Vishwakarma (21) the same day. A complaint was lodged by Archanadevi Vishwakarma, sister in law of the deceased Nilu Vishwakarma, at Sachin GIDC police station on Thursday afternoon.
Archanadevi, who lives in Talangpur area in Sachin, alleged in her complaint that she was busy in her house chores, while her Nilu (20) was sitting outside her house chatting with a neighbour Kamladevi.
In the meantime, their neighbour Shailesh turned up and attacked Nilu with a long screwdriver stabbing her repeatedly on her face and throat. The accused then took a stone and hit her head repeatedly, causing her death on the spot, as mentioned in the FIR.
Police sources said there were more than 10 people —five women and five men—who witnessed the incident, but out of fear and horror could not come forward to save her.
After the incident, Archanadevi informed her husband Vikas Vishwakarma and father-in-law Gulabshanker Vishwakarma, who were at that time working in a textile factory in GIDC. Sachin GIDC police staff reached the spot and arrested Shailesh from his house, and registered an offence under IPC section 302 (murder) and began a probe.
Police Inspector at Sachin GIDC police station, J R Chaudhary, said, “The deceased and accused were neighbours for 12 years, and both families had good relations as they all hailed from Uttar Pradesh. For the last four years, the accused was in a relationship with the victim and wanted to marry her. Shailesh worked in a textile factory but was jobless for the past few months. The girl’s parents were against the match and sent a proposal for her marriage to another youth.”
As per primary probe, the girl had stopped seeing Shailesh on her father’s instructions, which enraged him and drove him to kill her, the police said.
