The accused came to meet the girl with a weapon to eliminate her

A jilted youth stabbed a teenage girl in Laxmi Nagar under jurisdiction of Bajaj Nagar police station on Sunday night.
Prima facie, police said, it appears that the youth and the girl were knowing each other. The duo were talking to each other when suddenly the youth, also in his teens, took out a dragger and stabbed the girl on her chest and abdomen.
The youth, Rohit and the girl, Sanika, were friends for last two years, added police. But Sanika had started distancing from Rohit recently.

A police officer informed that since childhood, Sanika was living at house of her paternal uncle, Avinash Patne, near Aath Rasta Chowk. Patne has his office beside an ATM on the ground floor of the residence.
At 8 pm, accused Rohit came to Patne’s house at 8 pm and inquired about Sanika. After seeing Rohit, Sanika refused to speak with him. However, Rohit repeatedly pleaded to her that he wants just a few minutes and talk to her. On Saika’s refusal to talk to Rohit, Patne immediately intervened and asked Rohit to leave.

Later, Patne came to his office, where the accused again pleaded and said he just wants to talk to Sanika for five minutes. Patne’s wife Sarika reached the office and raised objection to their meeting.

Meanwhile, Sanika came to the office and Patne allowed them to talk even as he kept a hawkish eye on them. During a discussion with Sanika, Rohit was trying to convince her to continue their friendship.Sanika firmly turned down his advances and asked him to leave the place. Patne also intervened and asked Rohit to leave the premises.

Suddenly, in a fit of rage, Rohit whipped out a dragger and stabbed Sanika on her abdomen. Patne, in a bid to save her, suffered injuries in his hand. Rohit again stabbed her repeatedly. Sanika suffered stab injuries on her chest and back and in the ensuing melee Rohit fled the spot leaving her in a pool of blood.
Injured Patne managed to take profusely bleeding Sanika to Sanjeevani Hospital. However, on observing Sanika’s serious injuries doctors referred her to Orange City Hospital.

On getting information, Bajaj Nagar police rushed to the spot. The cops recovered the blood-stained dragger from Avinash Patne’s office and cover of the weapon from the parking area of the apartment.
According to doctors at Orange City Hospital, Sanika has received multiple grievous stab wounds on her lower back, near the kidney, chest and foot. Her condition is critical, they added.

Bajaj Nagar police have registered a case under Section 302 of Indian Penal Code against Rohit. The police have launched search for him.
