New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Sunday arrested a 15-year-old girl for allegedly stabbing a neighbour to death in a fight over water from a common tap in the Delhi’s Farsh Bazar area on Friday. According to the police on Sunday, The victim identified as Soni, a 34-year-old woman, was declared dead on arrival by doctors.

She received several cuts in her left hand and a stab wound in the stomach. According to the police, on Friday at 10.59 pm, a PCR call was received with the caller saying that his wife had been stabbed in the stomach and needed an ambulance.

 “Acting on the call, the police team reached the spot which was Gali no 2, Bhikam Singh Colony and found injured Soni in her room. She was having two-three cut marks on her left hand and a small wound on her stomach,” DCP Shahdara Surendra Choudhary said.

The victim was rushed to Hedgewar Hospital where she was declared dead on arrival by doctors. During the probe, it was revealed that Soni and her husband Satbir had a fight with their neighbours.

According to the police, there are four rooms on the first floor of the house. Three rooms are occupied by three separate families and the owner kept a room for his use. All the occupants of these four rooms use a common toilet and a common tap. There is a small space near the tap which is used by all the tenants for

washing clothes and utensils.

On the day of the incident, the mother of alleged CCL  was filling water in a tub for washing clothes but the deceased also wanted to wash her utensils  so she removed the tub before it got filled. As the mother of alleged CCL had to leave for her work soon, she wanted to wash her clothes whereas the deceased wanted to use the same space for washing utensils at the same time and an argument happened between the two.

In the evening, the argument again started when the deceased’s husband Satbir came home and started abusing the family of alleged CCL after consuming liquor.

“During the verbal spat, Soni twisted the girl’s hand, prompting the girl to seek treatment at Hedgewar Hospital. The girl was treated as a non-Medico Legal Case (MLC) patient, and an X-ray of her hand was conducted.

 “Subsequently, the girl and her mother returned to their home and engaged in another altercation with Soni and her husband Satbir. During this second altercation, Soni was stabbed by the girl,” said the DCP.

The officer said the girl has been apprehended and will be produced before the Juvenile Justice Board. A case under section 302 (attempt to murder) has been registered and investigation in the matter is ongoing.
