ROORKEE: A 19-year-old girl was killed by three men after breaking into her house in Roorkee around 1.30 pm on Saturday. The victim, Nidhi Paswan, was home alone when the three accused — Haider, Sariq and Riyan — barged into her house and slit her throat with a knife. While the other two managed to escape the crime scene, Haider was caught by the locals and handed over to the police.
According to sources, Haider used to stalk Nidhi, who worked at a local beauty parlour, and often pass derogatory remarks.
Taking cognisance of the crime, BJP legislator Deshraj Karanwal staged a sit-in protest in the locality and demanded immediate arrest of the assailants. The legislator was joined by the family members of the victim.
“These men killed an innocent girl brutally in broad daylight. They must be put behind the bars and the law should take its course against them,” said MLA Karanwal.
