A 32-year-old Jawaharlal Nehru University employee was on Thursday stabbed multiple times by her former live-in partner who suspected her of being in a relationship with someone else, police said Friday.
Pooja, a resident Kishangarh, was attacked by Varun Pandey (36) in front of JD Tytler School in south Delhi’s Munirka area where she had gone to pick up her daughter, they said.
“Pandey was caught by the locals and later handed over to police,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southwest) Devender Arya.
Pooja was rushed to Indian Spinal Injuries Centre here where her condition was stated to be critical. The knife was seized from the spot, Arya said.
During investigation, it was revealed that Pooja was a divorcee and she had been in live-in relationship with Pandey, a resident of Khanpur, for eight years, police said.
