Mumbai: The NM Joshi police arrested Akshay Kadam, a resident of Dhobi Talao, on Friday for allegedly stabbing his 22-year-old partner. Kadam and the woman were in a relationship since 2016, but he had lately started doubting that she was cheating on him with another man.
The suspicion of her cheating with another man landed the 25-year-old in jail. Suspicion on its peak, he would fight with her and getting tired of this, she would ignore his phone calls.
On Friday, when he was going to work, he saw her in Dhobi Talao. He brought her home and locked the door. He again started shouting at her and the fight turned violent when he picked up a knife and started stabbing her.
Hearing her screaming, neighbours started knocking on the door and when no one opened it, they broke it open.
Startled, Kadam stopped stabbing her and instead slit his wrist. They rescued the girl and rushed them both to Nair Hospital. “Girl received multiple injuries on her head, forehead and ear. Kadam slit his wrist but it was not a major injury,” said an officer.
