Jabalpur: Man who slit woman’s throat, posted video with body, yet to be arrested

In the case of the brutal killing of a woman by her boyfriend over “infidelity” in Jabalpur district of Madhya Pradesh, the accused is yet to be arrested nearly a week after he posted a chilling video on social media of her lying dead in a resort in Jabalpur, PTI reported.

In the video, the accused, Abhijeet Patidar, is seen saying, “Bewafai nahi karne ka” (do not be unfaithful) inside the resort room with the woman lying in a pool of blood on the bed.

The woman, identified as Shilpa Jharia (22), was a resident of the Kundam area of Jabalpur district and was found dead in the resort on November 8, a police official said on Wednesday, the news agency reported.

In the video posted on Friday last, Patidar is seen showing the face of the woman lying on the bed by lifting the bedsheet and telling her not to “betray” him, he said to PTI.

In another video, Patidar is heard admitting that he killed the woman. Patidar is a resident of Patan town in Jabalpur who claims to be in the business of oil and sugar.

“Police personnel have been sent to various places in search of the man accused of killing his 22-year-old girlfriend, who was found dead in a resort in Jabalpur,” PTI quoted Superintendent of Police (SP) Siddharth Bahuguna as saying.
