A college student was attacked with a rod in South Delhi’s Malviya Nagar on Friday and she died on the spot. The woman, identified as Nargis, was a student of Kamala Nehru College.
According to the police, she was killed by her own cousin after she refused to marry him. The incident happened at the Malviya Nagar park near Delhi's Aurobindo College. Police have arrested her 28-year-old cousin Irfan in connection with the murder.
As per the preliminary probe, the woman’s family had refused to get them married because Irfan was not earning well. He was working as a delivery boy for the food delivery app Swiggy.
Irfan was upset after Nargis stopped talking to him. He knew Nargis used to attend coaching classes in Malviya Nagar and would regularly pass through the park where she was murdered.

“We received information that the body of a 25-year-old girl was found near Aurbindo College in South Delhi’s Malviya Nagar. An iron rod was found near her body. According to a preliminary investigation, the girl was attacked with a rod. Blood was oozing out from her head. Further investigation is in progress,” police said.
Delhi Commission for Women, Swati Maliwal, took note of the incident and tweeted, “In a posh locality like Malviya Nagar, a girl was beaten to death with a rod. Delhi is extremely unsafe. It doesn’t matter to anyone. Only in newspaper reports, the names of girls are changed, and the crimes do not stop.”
दिल्ली में जहां एक महिला को उसके घर के बाहर गोली मारके उसकी हत्या की गई वहीं दूसरी तरह मालवीय नगर जैसे पॉश इलाक़े में लड़की को रॉड से मारा गया। दिल्ली बेहद असुरक्षित है। किसी को फ़र्क़ नहीं पड़ता। सिर्फ़ अख़बार की खबरों में लड़कियों के नाम बदल जाते हैं, अपराध नहीं रुकते।— Swati Maliwal (@SwatiJaiHind) July 28, 2023
“The incident took place inside the park. The deceased is a college student. She had come to the park with her friend. There are injuries on the deceased’s head,” a senior police official told ANI.
