A 19-year-old girl was stabbed to death by two men in Delhi's Anand Parbat locality on Friday for resisting eve-teasing. Meenakshi, a class 11 student was stabbed 35 times on the face, chest and stomach by the duo, against whom she had earlier filed a molestation case.
The two men, who are brothers, were later arrested by the police and charged with murder. One of the accused has been identified as Jaiprakash.
On Friday, Meenakshi was at the local market along with her mother, when she was confronted by the attackers. The 19-year-old, sensing something sinister, fled the scene, but was chased down by the duo, IANS reported.
She was later cornered by the two at the balcony of a house and was stabbed repeatedly. The girl's mother, who also had rushed to save her daughter, sustained severe injuries.
Later, both the women were rushed to Ram Manohar Lohia hospital in Connaught Place, where the 19-year-old breathed her last.
The police said that in 2013 Meenakshi had lodged a molestation case against the two.
