Man stabs woman 20 times in public view
MUMBAI: A gym instructor whose marriage proposal had been rejected by a 24-year-old accountant lost it and stabbed the girl 20 times in broad daylight in the presence of dozens of people who simply looked on without rushing to the rescue of the victim.
The incident occurred in Mumbai's Andheri (East) when the 30-year-old man stabbed the girl repeatedly in the back, hands, chest and abdomen, after she rejected his proposal.
The man warned passersby not to come forward or he would kill them as well. While some simply ran away, others shut the doors and windows of their homes, reports The Times of India.
The girl was attacked barely metres away from her aunt's place. Fortunately for the girl, her cousins arrived at the spot immediately after the attack and she was taken to a hospital on time. Her condition was stable but any delay could have cost the girl her life.
The man fled the scene after the attack but hours later he was arrested from his relative's home in another Mumbai suburb.

“When the officers asked her to stand up she was unstable,” the New York Daily News quoted a police official.
The woman later told authorities that she left her kids in the car so they could watch a movie. The Florida Department of Children and Families took custody of her kids.
Passenger finds needle in sandwich on flight
TORONTO: Air Canada says a passenger found what appears to be a sewing needle in a catered sandwich on board a flight from Victoria, British Columbia, to Toronto.
Peter Fitzpatrick, a spokesman for the airline, said late Tuesday that the airline is "working closely with our caterers to ensure heightened security measures have been put in place."
Fitzpatrick says the airline contacted the caterers immediately after Monday's discovery. He says a police investigation is under way and they have not received any further reports of similar incidents.
Dutch police said earlier in July they were investigating how needles got into six sandwiches on Delta Air Lines flights from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, Seattle and Atlanta. Passengers discovered four of them. (AP)
