Hyderabad: In the second incident of its kind in less than a month, a stalker has killed a working girl in Hyderabad. According to the police, 24-year-old B Janaki, an employee of D Mart Mall in Kukatpally area was killed when a stalker angered by her refusal to marry him stabbed her to death.
She was seriously injured late last night when the assailant Anand alias Anantappa stabbed her at her home. According to the police Anand, a resident of Marepally village in Ranga Reddy district was also working in the same place and was stalking Janaki in the name of love.
“Ten days ago he had visited the residence of Janaki and threatened her that if she does not reciprocate his love, he will kill her,” Kukatpally police inspector V Prasanna Kumar said.
Janaki, who hails from Rajam mandal in Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh, was staying in a rented room with another woman, Rupa.
When she returned to the room last night, Anand who was hiding in the room stabbed her and fled from the scene. On hearing the screams of Janaki, her neighbours took her to a nearby private hospital where she succumbed to her injuries around midnight.
The police have launched a hunt to nab the assailant.
Earlier on December 21 another working girl Sandhya Rani was attacked by a stalker in Secunderabad area and burnt her to death after pouring petrol on her. He too was angered by the girl’s refusal to marry him.
