A man stabbed a woman in the wee hours of Sunday near CST and fled. The woman was declared dead after she was taken to the hospital. On Wednesday after the accused was arrested, the MRA police learnt that the woman was a prostitute and had stolen Rs 9,000 from the man.

According to MRA Marg police, on Sunday at around 9 pm, police received a call stating a person stabbed a 30-year-old woman with the woman being taken immediately to the GT hospital. Police officer said, “We didn’t have any clue about the accused, neither the CCTV footage was clear. Passersby who were around there could not recognise him as he immediately fled from the spot. We started a search for him according to the taxi number which he boarded later.”

MRA Marg senior PI, Sukhlal Varpe, said, “Our team started a search for him when around the Kalpana circle we got a knife which the accused had thrown near one of the gardens. We  collected his fingerprints and we came to know that he got down at Nagpada area at Sagar junction. Initially we were also clueless about the identity of  deceased woman, later we came to know that she worked as a prostitute at Kamathipura.”

Varpe further added, “We alerted all our sources and learnt  the identity of the accused. On Tuesday night we went to his work place and arrested him. He confessed to the crime .”

According to police, on Sunday he met Amina and a deal was struck wherein Ansari would pay Rs 500 to her. But later Amina saw Rs 9000 in his shirt and with Ansari being in the dark, she fled with the money. Ansari who sought to send the money to his native place for his mother’s treatment got enraged.

He first called her and asked her to return the money but when she refused, he brought a knife from a street seller and followed her. She crossed CST station and walked towards Fort, at this point he stopped her and stabbed her five times.  

The accused  is 22-year-old Akhtar Ansari, from U.P and the deceased is Amina Khan, 30, a resident of West Bengal. Ansari works as a tailor at a children clothes company at Nagpada. He came to Mumbai three years back and used to often visit Kamathipura.
