An argument over who would cook dinner took an ugly turn in southwest Delhi’s Uttam Nagar on Saturday evening, with a 28-year-old woman allegedly stabbing her boyfriend to death. The victim, 30-year-old Eezu — a Nigerian — died of multiple stab wounds, police said. The accused, Elvi Ujumma, was arrested and booked for murder.
Police said Ujumma had asked Eezu to come over to her house in the afternoon, but soon a violent argument ensued between them. The two calmed down after neighbours intervened. However, the fighting resumed when they left. Ujumma told police that the fight started over who would prepare dinner. She claimed that it was Eezu who hit her first.
To scare him away, she got a knife from the kitchen and asked him not to touch her. But when he again tried to attack her, she stabbed him repeatedly, police said. Angry, Eezu claimed, she locked herself in another room. Half an hour later, she went to check on him. “I got scared on seeing him bleeding badly and called my friends. Together, we took him to hospital. Doctors, however, declared him dead on arrival,” a police officer quoted her as saying.
Police said once she got to know that Eezu had died, Ujumma returned home and locked herself in a room. Informed about the incident, police made inquiries and arrived at the residence. They broke open the door and arrested the woman.
Vijay, caretaker of the house, said: “Eezu had been staying here for three months. Her boyfriend often visited her, but I had never received any complaint against them.”
Prabhjot, a neighbour, said he heard the two loudly arguing over something in the evening. “The man often came to the house, but I had never heard them fighting like this. After some time, I saw the woman and her friends hailing an autorickshaw and taking the man to hospital. He was bleeding badly,” he said.
