A college student allegedly hacked an 18-year-old young woman to death on Saturday afternoon in a busy street in Telangana’s Adilabad district after stalking her for months as she rejected his offer of marriage, police said.

The incident comes days after anInfosys techie S Swathi was murdered in a busy Chennai neighbourhood allegedly by a man who was infatuated with her.

Authorities in Bhainsa town said 21-year M Mahesh, a first-year degree college student was pressurizing his neighbour Sandhya to marry him for months but she rejected his overtures repeatedly.

A few days ago, Sandhya’s mother Saroja, a widow and a beedi worker – fixed her marriage with another man but Mahesh scuttled the match, police said.

Saroja complained to the police, who summoned Mahesh and warned him against harassing the woman.

A resentful Mahesh developed a grouse against Sandhya, who was out for grocery shopping when he allegedly attacked her and slit her throat in full public view, police said.

“Before they could stop him, he ran away. Sandhya died on the spot,” Bhainsa deputy superintendent of police Ande Ramulu said.

Police registered a murder case against Mahesh and are looking for him.
