Ashok Kumar Singh, a local police officer, said that the woman has sustained injuries in her stomach, chest, thigh, and neck.

Police superintendent Manoj Tiwari said that Kumar attacked the woman with a knife to kill her. He cited the preliminary inquiry and added two had known each other for four years and that the woman stopped interacting with Kumar under family pressure. “Enraged over this, the man shared her pictures on social media six months ago. The woman’s family filed a police complaint and held a panchayat where she said she discontinued her relationship and refused to marry him.”
