A man allegedly stabbed his ex-girlfriend to death in a PG here over a rape case she had filed against him, police said on Monday.

Police arrested the man after he informed them about the incident on Saturday night.


The 32-year-old deceased woman had come to meet the accused in his PG in Gurugram from Maharashtra, police said.

According to police, Suraj Verma (28) claimed that the woman had filed a rape case against him in 2023, and he got bail in the case after a "compromise" with her. Verma claimed that she was now trying to blackmail him, they said, adding that his claims were being probed.

"Both the accused and deceased were in a love affair and the woman had filed a rape case against the accused in Maharashtra last year," said Inspector Arjun Dev, SHO of Sadar Police Station.

"The accused claimed that the woman was blackmailing him, but it is a matter of investigation. The accused was produced in a city court today and sent into judicial custody," he said.

Verma and the deceased woman are both residents of Akola, Maharashtra. The accused was working in a private company and lived in a PG near Tikli village here, police said.

According to police, they got a call from Verma around 8 pm Saturday that he had killed a woman. A police team reached the spot and found the woman lying in the pool of blood and arrested Verma, who was in a washroom in the PG.

Police said the body was taken into custody and kept in the mortuary. After identifying the body, her family were informed, they said.
