Indore Stalker Stabs Woman 38 times for “Modern Lifestyle”
A 25-year-old woman was killed by a stalker who stabbed her over 38 times, in Indore, on Thursday, 13 September night, police said.
Kamlesh Sahu, who admitted to killing Supriya Jain, had been stalking her on Facebook for a long time and killed her because he couldn’t bear to see her “adopt a modern lifestyle and make male friends”, the Times of India reported.
Police told TOI that Kamlesh Sahu, the suspect, attacked Supriya late 13 September night, outside her office. He covered his face with a handkerchief, and grabbed Supriya on the busy road outside her office, in front of Indore’s CHL Hospital.
Kamlesh was arrested and sent to jail after the incident. The 25-year-old victim, Supriya Jain, was rushed to a hospital by police, but was declared dead around 6:30 am on Friday, 14 September, TOI reported.
MIG Road police station inspector Tehseeb Qazi told Hindustan Times that Kamlesh and Supriya went to the same school. He added that Kamlesh had proposed to Supriya six years ago, but that she refused to be with him.
Police added that when Supriya rebuffed Kamlesh’s advances, he slashed his wrists to frighten her and force her into “accepting his proposal.”
Soon after this incident, Supriya moved to Indore to complete her studies and work. However, Kamlesh found her through Facebook and began stalking her, even proposing to her once more. Supriya refused once again.
Angered by her rejection, Kamlesh tracked her office and home locations through Facebook, and began following her, police said.
Police officers added that Kamlesh decided to kill Supriya seven days ago, and was waiting for the ideal moment.
