Chennai: 18-Year-Old Woman Rejects A Marriage Proposal; Stabbed By The Man!


Rejection has always been the reason for the murder of a lot of women. Swathi murder, the murder of a woman at Perungalathur and now the stabbing of a woman because one can’t take a NO for an answer only goes to show the development of our society. In a shocking incident, an 18-year-old woman was stabbed by a 22-year old man for rejecting his marriage proposal. Police arrested the man and charged him with an attempt to murder and stalking.

The 18-year-old college student was severely injured in the incident and is going through treatment for injuries on her hands and face. Doctors have stated that her condition is stable.

TOI earlier reported the girl had scolded Rohith in front of his friends, following which he felt insulted and waited outside her house to attack her.

According to bystanders, he was reeking of liquor, the officer added.

Both Rohith and the girl were on good terms till he proposed marriage. She rejected the proposal stating that he did not have a job, said the investigating officer.

He later visited her house and asked her parents to allow him to marry her. They also rejected the marriage proposal and asked him to leave their daughter alone.

But, he would follow her every day when she was going to college and on her way back.

She had informed her parents that she was being repeatedly stalked by Rohith and they had warned him that they will file a police complaint but he didn’t mend his ways, reported TOI.
