The girl, 19, was a third year BA student, they said.

The accused, Ajay, 22, had been following the girl for the past few days and wanted to make a friendship. On Saturday he barged into the victim's house after finding her alone and proposed her for marriage, officiating in-charge, Kakadev, said.

When she rejected, he tried to strangle her before stabbing her multiple times, he added.

Nikki was rushed to the Lala Lajpat Rai (LLR) hospital, where she succumbed to injuries Sunday morning, Khan said.

An case has been registered and efforts are on to nab the accused, he said.
