Shabir a 23-year-old MBA student, a resident of Katpadi was arrested for attempting to murder a girl whom he loved. Shabir and Sangeetha (name changed), 23, of Kalpudur had been in a relationship since their schooldays. The incident took place at Green Circle here on Sunday night.
Police said Sangeetha had told Shabir to get her parent’s permission for their marriage. He approached her family members recently. However, they objected to the marriage since they were from two different religions. Following this, the woman asked her lover to be patient and also firmly told him that she would not get married without her parents’ permission.
On Sunday evening, Shabir contacted the girl and asked her to come for dinner. After they had food at a restaurant near the Green Circle, they walked towards the parking lot where Shabir opened the topic of their marriage. Sangeetha allegedly denied his request to marry him and once again told him to wait for her parent’s permission.

Angered over this, he abused the girl and took a button knife that he was carrying with him and slit her throat, according to Vellore North inspector of police K Nagarajan.
Shabir attempted to murder Sangeetha as he doubted that she was planning to get married to someone else, added the inspector. “The girl’s family had earlier lodged a complaint against him with the Katpadi police for harassing her to get married to him. The police had obtained a written statement from the youth and warned him not to disturb her anymore,” added the police official.
The woman was rushed to CMC Hospital where she received around 10 stitches. The doctors declared her out of danger. She was discharged from the hospital on Monday morning.
The police registered a case against Shabir under sections 294 (b) (abusive language) and 307 (attempt to murder) of the IPC and remanded him in judicial custody.
