In a video that has now gone viral on social media, the accused could be seen attacking the victim with a machete while she collapsed on the middle of the road. A passerby, stopped his bike and intervened to pacify the situation, even when Ismail was armed with the deadly weapon.

The incident took place when the victim was en route her workplace at a jewellery shop. Ismail stopped her on the way and attacked her brutally with a machete from behind. Republic TV reported that Ismail had also tried to commit suicide a few days ago but was saved by his relatives. The accused works as an auto driver in Rampura in Dharwad district.

Nikita Tomar shot dead in Mewat

Earlier in October, a 21-year-old student named Nikita Tomar was shot dead in full public view by two men outside the Aggarwal college in Ballabgarh, Faridabad. Her family has now alleged that he was forcing her to convert to Islam and marry him. A relative stated that Taufeeq alias Sajeed started harassing Nikita three years ago. A few months back, too, a complaint was lodged against him for harassment and molestation.

However, the family later dropped the case. Lately, the accused again allegedly started hounding her and pressuring her to embrace Islam. The relative confirmed that the accused initially wanted to abduct her but killed her when she resisted to his demands. The family has now demanded that a Special Investigation Team (SIT) should be constituted to probe the case.
