Married woman stabbed to death in city

Friday, 01 March 2024 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

A married woman was stabbed by a youth at Jharana Nagar near Sishu Bhawan Square under the Capital police limits in Bhubaneswar on Tuesday night.

The victim succumbed to her injuries on Wednesday night, police said on Thursday. 

The deceased was identified as Geetanjali Ranjit and the accused as Kalu. Following the death of Geetanjali, police have registered a murder case and launched a probe. 

Geetanjali’s husband had a mobile phone shop. Some 20 days ago, he had employed Kalu, a carpenter to repair his shop. Both Geetanjali’s husband and Kalu are residents of Jaleswar in Baleswar district.

During this period, Kalu developed a relationship with Geetanjali. Finally, he asked her to elope with him. When she refused to go with him, he reportedly hatched a plan to murder her. 

On Tuesday night, she was returning from the shop when Kalu attacked her with a knife. Hearing her scream, people came to her rescue and rushed her to the Capital Hospital.

City DCP Prateek Singh said the criminal involved in the incident has been identified and steps were being taken to apprehend him.
