VARANASI: A 22-year-old jilted lover slit the throat of his 18-year-old ex-girlfriend in full public view as she alighted from a train at Azamgarh railway station on Thursday evening.
He then tried to end his life as well by slitting his throat. Both were rushed to hospital where the girl was declared ‘brought dead’ while the accused is undergoing treatment at the hospital.
Initial investigation said the girl had eloped with the accused six months ago, but the two later separated as her family did not approve of the affair.
The girl went to live with her parents in Mumbai and had returned to her relative’s house in Azamgarh when the incident took place. The accused is a native of Azamgarh, police said.

Police said that the girl, a native of a village in Bilariyabanj area of Azamgarh, had an affair with the youth, Dhananjay Paswan, of Shahpur Godsar.
They had secretly tied the nuptial knot about six months back after fleeing from their homes. Later, under the pressure of relatives, the girl broke the tie and went to her parents’ place in Mumbai.
On Thursday evening, when the girl along with her family members came out of the Godan Express coming from Mumbai, Dhananjay, who was also travelling in the same train, appeared on the scene all of a sudden and slit her throat, before people could understand what was happening. After attacking the girl, Dhananjay slit his own throat. Sensation prevailed at the station after this incident.
GRP personnel rushed to the spot on getting information and took both of them to the divisional hospital.
SP (City) Azamgarh Shailendra Lal said, “The girl died on the spot while Dhananjay is under treatment at the hospital. A case has been lodged against the accused and legal action is being taken.”
