19-year-old Naina Kaur was brutally stabbed to death by stalker Sheru Khan (22) while out shopping with her parents on Wednesday evening in Ghaziabad, NCR.
As per a Times of India report –
“A 19-year-old woman was stabbed multiple times by a stalker in the middle of a road at a market near Ghaziabad’s Tila Mor while she was returning home with her parents on Wednesday evening. She was rushed to a hospital in Delhi, where she succumbed on Thursday morning.
Cops said the woman, Naina Kaur, used to live with her parents Baldev Singh (62) and Neelam Kaur (58) in Tulsi Niketan’s Vivek Vihar colony. Her elder sister is married. Naina was pursuing a nursing course in Delhi after completing her intermediate from a school in the capital last year. Her wedding was scheduled for June 22.
Baldev told TOI that around 8pm, the family had gone to market and was returning home after buying a SIM card. “Naina wanted to eat chilli potatoes and stopped at a Chinese food outlet with her mother. I turned back to go as it was humid,” said Baldev, who works as a clerk in a private firm in Delhi.
“I had only gone 50 metres when three men arrived on a bike. One of them, with his face covered in a mask, pulled Naina’s hands and thrashed her, after which she fell. When my wife tried to rescue her, he slapped her and she became unconscious,” Baldev added.
“One of the men stopped me from trying to reach my wife and daughter. When Naina saw her mother lying on the road, she got up and slapped the accused several times. Suddenly, he stabbed her with a knife — first on the neck, abdomen and then other parts. He then fled with the two other people on the bike,” Baldev told TOI.
During the fight with the men, Naina’s mother managed to tear the mask of the main accused and identified him as Sheru Khan (22), a resident of Delhi’s Sunder Nagri, police said. “He said he was in love with Naina since the time she used to go to school in Sunder Nagri,” a police officer said.
While Sheru Khan is yet to be traced, Ran Singh, SHO of Tila Mor, said that his two accomplices, Asif (22) and Aamir Chaudhary (20), were arrested. Aamir also lives in Sunder Nagri while Asif is a resident of Sahibabad. On the basis of a complaint by Baldev, all three men were booked under IPC Section 302 (punishment for murder).
“We have put Sheru’s mobile number under surveillance and are trying to trace him. We are also questioning the other two accused,” said Singh. Naina’s cousin Vicky said Naina had been very happy about her wedding. The date had been fixed in January this year.
“Around 25 of us were supposed to travel on June 20 for the wedding in Nagpur, where Naina’s fiancé lives and runs a restaurant. All arrangements had been done. Naina had done the shopping for her him as well,” he said.”
According to OpIndia, Baldev Singh informed that his daughter and Sheru Khan studied computers together in Durgapuri in Delhi. He alleged that Sheru khan often harassed her and wanted to marry her. Around a week ago, he even came to their residence to threaten his daughter.
While the phenomena of stalking is rising across the board, cases of non-Muslim girls being murdered/attacked by Muslim stalkers or after a relationship turns sour are extremely common, while the reverse hardly ever occurs.
Such attitudes are fostered by fundamentalist Islamic doctrine which encourages Muslim youth to view girls of other communities as ‘war booty’ or legitimate targets for sexual exploitation/forced conversion & marriage. Many times, it has been observed that even female members of Muslim families participate in assisting their males to target non-Muslim girls. Bollywood, especially movies like the Salman Khan-starrer Tere Naam, have also played a key part in glorifying stalking and obsessive ‘love’.
- In 2017, 21-year-old aspiring air hostess Riya Gautam was brutally stabbed to death by stalker Mohammed Adil (22), a local petty criminal who had been stalking her for months in East Delhi’s Mansarovar Park, Shahadra (close to the area where Naina was stabbed).
- Again in 2017, a college student Aarti Sharma (20) was left battling for life after her former boyfriend Ajmal Shah slashed her throat with a blade.
- In 2018, banana seller Abdul Samad (25) stabbed Madhu (18) in Secunderabad, Telangana for refusing to go out with him.
- Last year, 20-year-old Priti Mathur was stabbed to death by 25-year-old stalker Munasir Ahmed in Delhi’s Nizamuddin area.
Incidentally, Sunder Nagri, the area where absconding accused Sheru Khan lives, is one of the areas in East Delhi and other parts of the NCR (National Capital Region) which are seeing a gradual exodus of Hindus because of rising Islamism.
Mohammed Haseen Qureshi (20), the main accused in IB staffer Ankit Sharma’s brutal murder during February’s anti-CAA Delhi riots, was also a resident of Sunder Nagri.
