A 38-year-old dentist was murdered on Friday afternoon at her home in Uttar Pradesh’s Agra. The accused gained entry to the woman’s house on the pretext of recharging the TV set-top box.
The victim, Dr Nisha Singhal, was attacked with a knife and had her throat cut. Dr Singhal’s children – the elder of whom is eight and the younger is four – were also attacked but have survived. While her husband Ajay Singhal, who is a surgeon, was on hospital duty at the time of the attack.
Police identified the accused from CCTV footage and he was arrested this Saturday morning. Police also said the accused, who conned his way into the Singhal residence by pretending to be a cable TV technician, was looking to rob the home.
Former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav expressed his outrage over the shocking incident. “The state is shocked by the incident in Agra where a women’s throat was slit at her home in a busy residential area. The BJP government is busy defending corrupt officials and creating false cases against opposition leaders. The state, instead of focusing on advertising itself on television, should focus on reducing crime in Uttar Pradesh,” the Samajwadi Party chief tweeted.
आगरा के एक व्यस्त रिहायशी इलाके में एक महिला डॉक्टर के घर में घुसकर गला रेतकर उसकी हत्या किये जाने की घटना से प्रदेश स्तब्ध है. भाजपा सरकार भ्रष्ट अधिकारियों को बचाने व विपक्षियों को झूठे मुक़दमों में फँसाने में लगी है.
सरकार टीवी पर प्रचार की जगह, उप्र में अपराध पर विचार करे. pic.twitter.com/QabKkC4rt0
