A 33-year-old married woman got murdered allegedly by her 21-year-old social media friend following a fight during her birthday celebration at an OYO hotel room in Delhi.
Police said Maan has told them that while he was drinking alcohol with the woman in the hotel room she slapped her for no reason. “He slapped back. At this, the woman allegedly threw a glass containing alcohol at him. A scuffle broke out between the couple during which Maan allegedly strangled the woman,” said a police officer, requesting anonymity.
Hotel staff told the media that the woman and Mann had visited the hotel six to seven times in the last five months. On Monday night, the staffer said, the couple had been playing songs loudly on the TV in the room.
Police said the woman’s body had found on the bed with blood oozing out of her nose and mouth on Tuesday morning by the hotel staff. Around 10 am, the room attendant went to serve breakfast. When nobody opened the door despite repeated knocks at the door, he informed the hotel manager.
The couple had met each other on social media around a year ago and became friends.
