A woman in India was arrested Wednesday after stabbing her boyfriend in the neck using a craft knife during an argument.
The man suffered a deep injury but is now out of danger, The Times of India reported, citing police.
The accused and her boyfriend, whose names were not disclosed but were described as private employees, have been in a relationship for more than six months. They had decided to celebrate her birthday on Tuesday.
According to KPHB police in Hyderabad, India, the two planned to meet at a restaurant, but the man did not arrive on time and instead turned up two hours late to the date.
The boyfriend, who was allegedly drunk at the time, slapped his girlfriend after an argument as she refused to go with him, police said.
“[The] accused, who had a craft knife with her, pulled it out and attacked her boyfriend. He suffered a deep gash on his neck and was taken to a hospital by locals,” police said, according to the Times of India.
Based on the victim’s complaint, an attempted murder case was registered against the woman.
Meanwhile, a mother of two was stabbed near Kadirayyana Palya in Indiranagar, India, on Nov. 25 by her former boyfriend after she rejected his proposal to marry him.
The injured, identified as 26-year-old Amuda, is a resident of Kadirayyana Palya, while the accused, Nawaz, worked as an auto driver and is a resident of Ambedkar Nagar.
According to the police, Amuda and Nawaz were in a relationship, but Nawaz got married to another woman. After his wedding, Amuda married another man named Elumalai in 2014, The New Indian Express reported.
Amuda was residing in Ambedkar Nagar with her husband, but Nawaz continued to ask her to marry him, according to police. Elumalai, who found out about this, left his wife. Amuda then returned to her mother’s house in Kadirayyana Palya about a year ago.
“Nawaz, however, continued to stalk her. On Friday night, he went and knocked on her door asking her to come out as he had to talk to her personally, but she refused. About an hour later, she went out to bring chips for her children when Nawaz attacked her with a knife and stabbed her in the face, neck and back before escaping with an associate on a bike,” police said, according to the outlet.
Police said they launched an attempt-to-murder probe and were searching for the accused.
As of this writing, there are no updates regarding the search for the accused and his associate.
