Press Trust of India Mumbai
A 25-year-old man was arrested today for allegedly killing his 20-year-old fiancee here on suspicion that she was in relationship with another man, the police said.
The incident occurred at Oval Maidan in south Mumbai, when the accused Salman Shekh allegedly stabbed Nasrin Shekh, following an argument, a police official said.
The deceased was working at a food joint in south Mumbai while the accused is a resident of Mumbra in neighbouring Thane district, he said.
Police were alerted about a woman lying in an injured condition at the ground this morning, he said.
A team of Azad Maidan Police rushed to the spot and found the woman unconscious with deep injuries on her stomach and other parts of the body, he said.
She was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was declared dead before admission, he said.
Police managed to get her residential address and contacted her father Umar Mohammed Shekh, the official said.
As Nasrin didn't return home since last morning, her father had approached Salman to know whereabouts of his daughter, he said.
During the enquiry, Umar named Salman as a suspect, the official said.
Accordingly, police interrogated Salman for more than four hours during which he reportedly confessed to the crime.
A case has been registered and further investigation is on.
