The accused, Yogesh Mahipal Singh, who was in a car, stopped her while she was returning home from a cafe and asked why she had discontinued talking to him, a police official said. This led to an argument and he stabbed Malhotra with a knife in the abdomen and on her hands and fled. The attacker is said to be a film producer who reportedly became Malvi’s Facebook friend in 2019. They met a few times.
Malvi has registered a complaint against Kumar Mahipal Singh. She has alleged that the accused wanted her to marry him, but when Malvi rejected the proposal and stopped all communication, he attacked her. “We have registered an FIR against Singh under various Indian Penal Code sections, including 307 (attempt to murder), and are conducting an investigation into the case,” Versova police station’s senior inspector Raghvendra Thakur said.

This is outrageous attack on a independent career women , Thank God she is safe.
The accused culprit must not be released from jail and a fast track court must sentence him nothing short of life imprisonment.

“In India, ‘NO’ apparently means death by bullet or stabbing or an acid splash or rape or abduction,” pointed out Papri Banerjee on Twitter, questioning why men cannot simply take a no in this country.
Fortunately for Malvi, she received immediate medical care and is now out of danger.

Some social media users pointed out how there is no fear of law and the police. Many people tagged the Mumbai Police and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, demanding action in the case.
It seems like one sided love case where the girl rejects the boy and the rich boy takes the extreme step.. Humanity is no more in people and they are not afraid of law, police etc etc
