A 20-year-old girl was stabbed to death allegedly by a jilted lover in east Delhi on Tuesday evening, police said.

The incident took place in Dallupura at around 5 pm and the deceased has been identified as Neha. Neha and her male friend Gaurav were travelling in the latter's car when Devender, 32, waylaid them.

He first stabbed Gaurav in his

cheek and then stabbed Neha, who died on the spot.

Gaurav

rushed to police who took her to hospital.

"Devender

was arrested. He was in love with Neha.

However,

she ignored him and went into a relationship with Gaurav.

This

enraged him and he allegedly decided to seek revenge," a senior police official said.
