Man attempts suicide

After strangling the girl, the man attempted to die by suicide, police said. Though the man slit his throat using a blade, he survived, they added. The police are now investigating the matter after a formal complaint was lodged by the girl’s father, at the Sector 63 Police Station in Noida.

The man has been charged under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Following discharge from the hospital, the man was arrested by police. During questioning the man revealed that 2 years back, he used to stay in the same building as the 19-year-old girl lived in Delhi. But a year later, he shifted to Chhijarsi village in Noida.

At the time, the 2 had been in a relationship. On Wednesday, the woman turned up at his residence in Chhijarsi and after a few minutes of casual talk, asked him to marry her. As she was insisting on her demand, the man tried to explain to her that he was already married and that her demand could not be fulfilled. He completely rejected the idea of marrying her.

The woman however did not let go off so easily and kept asking him to marry her. She threatened him and this led to an argument between the two. Matters got so heated that the man strangled her to death, said a police spokesperson.

The police have recovered a cloth which was allegedly used for the crime. A forensic team is also investigating the matter, while the accused has already been sent to jail. Once investigations are complete, the man will be presented in a court of law, said officials.
