Attempt to murder case filed: police

A 38-year-old labourer allegedly stabbed a woman and her mother for rejecting his marriage proposal in Dwarka on Sunday, police said.

Police said the victims have been identified as Laali (40) and her daughter Ruby (18) and the accused as Ramu. They are all residents of Kanganheri village in Kapashera.

Police said that Ramu was Laali’s late husband’s friend and often visited them. On August 15, he visited again and asked for Ruby’s hand in marriage but the mother refused stating the age difference. Also, she wants her daughter to study further.

However, Ramu didn’t buy the argument and started arguing with Laali. He eventually picked up a sharp weapon and attacked Laali, after which Ruby intervened to save her mother but was also attacked.
