A class 11 girl from Kotma village, 30 kms from Anuppur in Madhya Pradesh, was allegedly beheaded in front of her school on February 22, by a man who stalked her for years. The accused has been detained and is being questioned by the police.


The incident

The girl, Pooja Panika, had her biology practicals at 1 pm. At around 12:30 pm, when she was in front of the school, the accused Dilip Sahu ran up to her and allegedly hacked her neck thrice with a sword, said a retired school teacher, who is the only eyewitness, according to The Times of India. Pooja died on the spot.

The teacher raised an alarm and alerted the police. The accused fled immediately. The other students inside the school did not witness the incident as classes were still going on. The teachers did not want the students to witness the gruesome sight hence, refrained them from going outside until the police came and removed the body, sword and all traces of blood.

Dilip Sahu has been detained after taking statements from the girl’s family. Sahu had allegedly been stalking her for years. “In 2014, the girl had filed a complaint against Dilip and a criminal investigation was done on the matter,” police officer Vijay Singh told ANI.  


The Logical Indian take

Our society cultivates men with such fragile egos that they go to the extent of killing another if they don’t get their way. The inherent patriarchy makes men believe that a woman has no right to say no to him.

Pooja’s death is not an isolated incident. In December 2017, a woman was set on fire by her stalker for refusing his advances. It is time we realise the importance of consent and spread awareness on gender equality.
