A 55-year-old owner of a motor vehicle spare parts shop in southeast Delhi's Govindpuri was allegedly stabbed by her employee, who then killed himself in his house, police said today.
The victim, Premlata Gaba, was taken to Safdarjung Hospital for treatment.
Gaba alleged that one of her employees, Rohit (22), who has been working with her for one-and-a-half years, attacked her.
Rohit's attack with a kitchen knife was unprovoked, victim says
Yesterday, Rohit entered her shop on the pretext of taking a bedsheet which her son had asked for, and without any provocation, allegedly hit her with a kitchen knife and fled.
Police said he returned to his mother's house in South Delhi's Sangam Vihar.
She questioned him about his behavior. A few minutes later, he allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself using her saree.
