21-year-old stalker slits throat of teen in full public view
HYDERABAD: Close on the heels of the murder of an Infosys employee in Chennai, an 18-year-old girl was hacked to death by her stalker in broad daylight in Bhainsa town of Adilabad district of Telangana on Saturday evening.
According to Bhainsa police, 21-year-old M Mahesh, a first-year degree student, had been stalking his neighbour Sandhya and pressuring her to marry him but she had rejected his overtures several times. A few days ago, Sandhya’s mother fixed her marriage with another boy but Mahesh created troubles in the alliance. Following a complaint, police strongly warned him against harassing the girl.
“As a result, he developed a grouse against Sandhya. At around 3pm, when she was returning home from a nearby shop, he suddenly swooped in on her and slit her throat in the presence of locals. Even before they tried to stop him, he fled. Sandhya died on the spot,” Bhainsa deputy superintendent of police Ande Ramulu said.
