Chennai: M Aswini, a BCom student who is studying at Meenakshi Academy of Higher Education and Research, was stabbed to death on Friday outside her college entrance in KK Nagar, Chennai. The man who allegedly stabbed her has been identified as Alagesan, who is associated with a mineral water business. He tried to escape after stabbing Aswini, but locals caught hold of him and handed him over to the police. Although Aswini was rushed to the hospital, doctors declared that she was brought dead.
The incident brought back memories of another ghastly incident, on the morning of June 24, 2016, when Infosys employee S Swathi was hacked to death in broad daylight while waiting for her train at the busy Nungambakkam railway station.
The Chennai Police is yet to verify the reasons behind the broad daylight murder. However, few officers of the Chennai Police believe that Aswini and Alagesan were in a relationship. Alagesan, it is said, even used to frequent her house. However, last month Aswini’s mother lodged a complaint with Maduravoyal police alleging that Alagesan barged into their house and forcibly tied Mangalsutra around her daughter’s neck.
Following constant harassment from Alagesan, Aswini stayed off from attending college for a brief time. Afterward, she moved to a relative’s house in Jafferkhanpet and resumed attending college.This infuriated the youth, who according to some reports, had financially assisted Aswini to pursue her education. Hence he plotted to murder her.
The accused, who works in a water-can supply agency has claimed that he had married Ashwini on February 16, this year. However, the girl’s relatives denied his claims stating that he had barged into the house and forcefully tied the ‘mangalsutra’ on her.
He also told the police that after the marriage, there was a rift between them and a complaint was lodged at the Maduravoyal police station.
The police said that Alagesan had gone to meet Ashwini to patch up with her, which ultimately turned into a tragedy.
