Congress Marks 10 Years Since Sandy Hook Shooting: 'So Much Work To Do' AdinaVoicu/ Pixabay

A man allegedly shot and killed a 15-year-old teen girl for rejecting his proposal in Bhadohi, Uttar Pradesh, India on Wednesday, Jan. 18.

The accused, identified as 22-year-old Arvind Vishwakarma, was reportedly in love with the teen victim, Anuradha Bind, 15. However, when Vishwakarma expressed his love and proposed to the victim, Bind blindly turned down his proposal, Hindustan Times reported.

When Bind turned down his proposal, Vishwakarma reportedly felt upset. Irked by his relationship proposal being turned down, he decided to take revenge on the victim. On Wednesday, Jan. 18, when Bind was returning home from a coaching institute along with her cousin sister Nisha, the accused approached her, pulled out a gun, and shot her in the head.

The victim suffered grievous injuries in the shooting and died on the spot.

Following the shooting, the officers started an investigation into the incident and have launched efforts to trace the accused.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a man was accused of heinously hurling acid at a woman's face for turning down his proposal for marriage in Bangalore, India on Friday, June. 10, 2022, as previously reported.

The accused, identified as 36-year-old Ahmed, had reportedly known the 32-year-old victim for the last three years and used to work with her in a factory producing incense products. Ahmed, who was reportedly in love with the woman, had allegedly been pestering the victim to marry him for several weeks before the incident. However, as the victim once again rejected his marriage proposal, an enraged Ahmed, in apparent retaliation, attacked the woman by throwing acid against her face.

The 32-year-old victim, who is divorced and has three children, sustained serious injuries in her right eye and had to be immediately rushed to a hospital by onlookers. She underwent treatment at a private facility for burn injuries and survived the incident.

"She is out of danger. Her eyesight has been partially restored too. We hope she recovers fully soon," said Harish Pandey, DCP South.

"The accused had been forcing her for marriage for many days. Angry with her rejection, he assaulted her," Pandey added.
