A woman was fatally stabbed on Saturday in the Bhagalpur district of Bihar. Shakeel Miyan, the accused, allegedly attacked her after the victim allegedly failed to pay back the money she had borrowed from Miyan for her daughter’s wedding. The police claim that the accused chopped off the victim’s limbs.
Bhagalpur’s Superintendent of Police (SP) said that two people have been arrested after the victim’s family named them.
“It was found that the deceased and the accused were neighbours and they had friendly relations. The victim had borrowed money from him for her daughter’s wedding but was unable to return it. Due to this, the accused attacked her with a sharp weapon,” the police told news agency ANI.
The victim was rushed to the hospital, where she was declared dead.
A garment factory employee was arrested in Mumbai for reportedly stabbing a coworker in the chest with a pair of scissors in a related incident. Together at a garment factory in Santacruz’s New Agripada neighbourhood, the 20-year-old accused and the 19-year-old victim were talking on Sunday night when the incident happened, according to PTI, citing police officials.
“After the teen was stabbed, he was rushed by colleagues to a nearby hospital. He initially told police he fell from the stairs. However, just before passing away, the victim narrated the chain of events, after which we arrested his colleague,” the official said.
