New Delhi :

The alarming surge in crimes against women is a big headache for the city police. Daily reportage of rapes, molestation play havoc for females when it comes to stepping out at night.

In a case of stalking, Sunil, a 34-year-old taxi driver who had been stalking a woman for about a year was waiting outside a fashion designing institute in Lal Bagh in northwest Delhi on Thursday.

He was standing there with a loaded pistol, a bottle of sulfas tablets and a note in his pocket, as reported by a leading daily. Apparently his intention was to kill the woman who he had been stalking and then commit suicide.

Head constable Jaswini and constable Pooja were meeting women in Lal Bagh area as part of ‘Operation Bharosa’, an outreach programme, when someone informed them about a man trying to abduct a woman at gunpoint.

“Acting swiftly, the two cops rushed towards the street where they found the man holding a pistol in his hand and dragging the woman. The man threatened to shoot the woman if anyone intervened. The policewomen asked him to release the woman but he continued to threaten ,” said Vijay Singh, deputy commissioner of police (northwest).

Surprisingly nobody came to her rescue when the incident took place in broad daylight. The two cops suddenly jumped on the man, snatched his pistol and released the woman from his grip.

A resident of Azadpur village in north Delhi, Sunil was in love with the woman, a second-year college student of Delhi University, but it was one-sided, police said.

Sunil was previously arrested in July 2015 for molesting the same woman. A case was then registered at the Ashok Vihar police station.
