A 22-year-old college student allegedly killed an acquaintance of his by slitting her throat in public for rejecting his proposal. The gruesome incident reportedly happened in Surat, Gujarat, India on Saturday, Feb. 12.

The accused Fenil Goyani, a resident of the Kapodra area, was reportedly in love with the 21-year-old victim, Grishma Vekariya, before the heinous confrontation. Goyani confessed his love to the victim on Saturday. However, the victim refused his advances and rejected his plea to enter into a relationship with him.

This angered Goyani who reportedly proceeded to slash Vekariya's throat and kill her in public out of anger. After murdering Vekariya, Goyani tried to consume poison in an attempted suicide and also cut a vein on his arm, NDTV reported.

The gruesome incident was reportedly captured on video by the victim's family members who immediately shouted for help, requesting the accused to leave her alone.

Goyani had reached the victim's house on his motorcycle. He initially talked to Vekariya outside her home. However, he turned violent when the woman rejected his proposal, taking her hostage at knifepoint.

When the woman's uncle confronted Goyani and asked him to stay away from her, he proceed to stab him in the abdomen and ultimately slit the woman's throat. He also injured the victim's brother who had rushed out of the residence during the melee, the Times Of India reported.

Goyani was taken to Surat Municipal Institute of Medical Education and Research (SMIMER) in a critical condition. He faces charges under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections for murder and attempted murder.

In a similar but unrelated incident, an Indian man has been accused of viciously bludgeoning to death a woman he loved, right in front of the victim's own mother, for rejecting his proposal in Guwahati, Assam, India, Latin Times reported.

The accused, identified as Sanjay Lalung, was reportedly in love with the victim Marami Tanti and expressed his love for her several times. However, frustrated by the victim's constant rejection, Lalung, in a fit of rage, allegedly dragged Tanti out of a vehicle, slashed her with a machete, and proceeded to murder her in front of her mother out of anger.

On the day of the brutal slaying, Lalung reportedly visited Tanti's residence unannounced. After seeing Tanti and her mother approaching the residence in their car, he walked up to the two before proceeding to drag the victim out of the vehicle and attack her with a machete. Tanti was reported dead at the scene. After killing the woman, the accused fled from the crime scene in his car.

He was later tracked down and arrested by the Satgaon police.
