The VB Nagar police arrested a 25-year-old jilted lover for stabbing his girlfriend to death with a scissor recently.
The police said the accused, Irfan alias Sameer Mohammad Umar Varsi, told investigators that the scissor fell on her while she was asleep on Saturday around 4pm.
According to the police, the accused owned a vehicle seat cover shop in Kurla and the deceased, Rekha Mangwana, 25, was into the same business.
They got to know each other through the business and eventually got into a relationship. But their families opposed the marriage. The girl then decided to marry someone of her parent’s choice, which triggered the incident.
Senior inspector Bharat Bhoite from VB Nagar police station said, “Varsi was already married and has a three-year-old son from his former wife. They had been living separately for the past three years. But a month ago Varsi’s wife sent him a picture of their son, which Mangwana noticed. That made her think that Varsi would never marry her.”
The girl agreed to marry the person of her parent’s choice and the wedding was fixed. When the accused learnt of her marriage, he called her to his workshop on Saturday.
“As soon as she came to the workshop, the couple had a heated argument. He then stabbed Mangwana on her chest with a scissor,” Bhoite added.
Then, he took her to Kohinoor hospital where she was declared dead because of lung puncture. However, after Varsi was questioned about the incident, he tried to mislead the police saying the scissor fell on her while she was asleep.
An officer from VB Nagar police station said, “Varsi said the scissor fell on her but the stab injury was very deep. So deep that it led to her death. Varsi was taken into custody and during the course of interrogation the accused was arrested.”
Varsi has been booked under Section 302 (punishment for murder) of the Indian Penal Code. He has been remanded in police custody.
