Initially, Jaishankar hit her, but when she tried to defend herself, he stabbed her repeatedly. The accused then tosses the knife and walks away after Punitha falls to the ground.

One of the passersby then comes forward and checks on her. People then took her to the Ambur government hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. Jaishankar was detained by Ambur Police when they found the murder’s CCTV footage.

Earlier, a man in Madhya Pradesh allegedly killed his wife, 7-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter and buried their bodies in his house in Ratlam. The incident came to light after some people realized the family of the accused was missing.

Ratlam Superintendent of Police Abhishek Tiwari said the man was taken into custody where he confessed his crime. The bodies were dug up in the presence of doctors and forensic experts.
