What can be termed as a repeat of the gruesome killing of a college girl in Delhi, Nagpur too witnessed, a hitherto unseen incident. A girl student of a city engineering college was stabbed to death in full public view on Friday morning.

The city police identified the victim as Monica Dasrath Kirnapure (21), a third year electronics student of Rajashree Mulak Engineering College for Women run by the Maharashtra minister of state for Excise, Rajendra Mulak.

Monica, daughter of farmer, Dashrath Kirnapure of Nagardhan under Ramtek tahsil of Nagpur, lived in a nearby Pratibhatai Pawar Women’s Hostel at Nandanwan in eastern part of Nagpur.

Like every day, Monica walked her way from the hostel to the college at about 11 am when two unidentified youths attacked her from the behind. The accused, sources claimed, were trailing the girl and stabbed her near the college.

She collapsed immediately and was rushed to a nearby private nursing home where she was pronounced dead.

The reason for the murder was not known immediately. However, it may be the handiwork of a jilted lover, sources claimed.

Monica had reportedly lodged a complaint with the college authorities a few days ago that a boy was harassing her. However, no action was initiated by the authorities in this regard.

“We are investigating the matter in every possible angle,” informs Murlidhar Borade, the in-charge of Nandanwan police station.

No arrests have been made so far.

Earlier this week, a Delhi University student, Radhika Tanwar was shot dead outside her college in south Delhi last week.
