Udaipur : Constant nagging for late payment of house rent irked three youths to an extent that they stabbed their landlady to death here in the city on Friday. The brutal murder has come as a big shock for not only the victims family but the entire neighborhood.
The incident happened on Friday evening at sector 14 under Goverdhan Vilas police station area. Harjeet Kaur (35) had rented a portion of her house to three youths who were undertaking a skill development course in a private company. The lady always reprimanded them as they didn’t pay the rent on time and the woman had warned them that she would make them vacate the house due to their untimely payment. The youths felt humiliated as the woman had rebuked them quite a number of times even before outsiders and hence they planned that whenever the woman next came for an argument, they would teach her a lesson.
On Friday the Harjeet went downstairs and demanded the rent when suddenly one of the tenant took out a knife and stabbed her multiple times all over her body. The victims six year old son and an eight year old daughter were eye witnesses of the cold blooded murder. As they shouted for help the accused fled, the neighbours managed to catch one of the tenant who was badly beaten up by the colony residents and fell unconscious. Police rushed to the spot and shifted the body to the mortuary while they tried to contact the deceased’s family members. A case has been registered and an FSL team visited the spot to collect evidences.
