Nargis, a 23-year-old woman from Delhi, tragically lost her life after allegedly being killed by a relative who had proposed marriage to her. Her family revealed that she aspired to achieve financial independence and was actively preparing for government job examinations at a coaching center.
The accused, 28-year-old Mohammad Irfan, was Nargis’ first cousin, and their mothers were sisters. Several years ago, Irfan used to live with Nargis’ family, but he was asked to leave due to his alleged harassment towards her. Despite her efforts to avoid him, Irfan persistently tried to meet Nargis near her coaching center.
The fatal incident occurred in a park in Malviya Nagar, South Delhi, where Nargis was allegedly attacked with an iron rod by Irfan. Her grieving father, a motor mechanic, expressed the family’s demand for justice and strict punishment for the accused.
Around six months ago, the family had rejected Irfan’s marriage proposal, and Nargis, who did not wish to marry him, had filed a complaint against him. Irfan had previously attempted to join the army, but after failing last year, he was working as a food delivery agent.
Nargis was a diligent student who had completed her graduation in Hindi honors. Her determination to succeed in government job exams showcased her ambition and dedication to building a promising career. Despite her bright future prospects, the tragic outcome of her relationship with Irfan underscores the grave consequences of domestic violence and harassment.
