A constable of the UT police was stabbed thrice in her back by her husband, a sepoy in the Army, near the Kishangarh roundabout here today. The accused, who used a stolen scooter to commit the crime, has been arrested in a case of attempt to murder. 

The victim, identified as Bhupinder Kaur (25) of Kishangarh, who is posted at the Traffic Lines in Sector 29, was heading towards her workplace on an Activa when her husband Samsher Singh (21) stopped her and stabbed her following heated arguments.

The police said they had received information regarding the incident near Dashmesh Nursery, Kishangarh, around 8.55 am. 

The injured cop was rushed to the PGI. Her condition is said to be stable. The accused was caught by people and handed over to the police.

The police said the couple had a matrimonial dispute. 

Samsher Singh, a sepoy in 13 Sikh LI regiment and posted in Nagaland, is a native of Uppal village in Amritsar district. The police said they had found the knife used in the crime. Sources said the accused stole a scooter from Sector 29 to commit the crime. 

“The accused thought that he would not get caught if he used a stolen vehicle to flee from crime spot,” the sources added.

Samsher Singh has been booked under Sections 307 (attempt to murder), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means) and 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint) of the Indian Penal Code at the IT Park police station.
