Uzbek woman stabbed in Delhi, three held

New Delhi, Oct 25 (IANS) A 35-year-old woman from Uzbekistan was stabbed and injured by a group of Afgan nationals in Lajpat Nagar area here over illicit relations, police said on Tuesday. Three accused, including a minor girl, have been arrested in the case.

Zarina was stabbed on Sunday night by the 15-year-old girl and her two friends Abdullah and Shorab in the South East district.

The woman is admitted in the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS).

“After Zarina told one of her friends about her husband’s illicit affair with the girl, the latter with the help of her two friends attacked Zarina with a knife,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Romil Baniya told IANS.

Police arrested the trio after a passerby saw the girl fleeing along with her accomplices in a car and made the PCR call thinking she had been kidnapped by the two youths, the police officer said.

The police intercepted the car on the Lala Lajpat Rai Marg and came to know the reality.

A case was registered against the trio at the Amar Colony police station, Baniya said.
