A 32-year-old woman was stabbed multiple times by her former husband at a busy marketplace in Jodhpurgam area of Ahmedabad on Tuesday night. The woman, who has been identified as Dimple Thakor, is now critical and the accused is on the run.
Dimple, a resident of Jivraj area in Ahmedabad, worked as a receptionist at a shop in the Satellite area. According to the police, Dimple was stalked and attacked by her former husband Aakash Thakor, who stabbed her multiple times on a busy road near Yash Tower in Jodhpurgam around 9 pm on Tuesday.
“On Tuesday, my daughter left for work around 9 am. Around 9 pm, she gave me a call saying Aakash had stabbed her in the stomach and neck and she was lying on the road. A few people then took her to Civil Hospital in Sola. Akash was mistreating Dimple after the wedding and that is why she had divorced him,” Dimple’s father Bharat Thakor said in his complaint.
An FIR under IPC Section 307 for attempt to murder has been registered against Aakash at Anandnagar police station.
