A horrific incident unfolds in Chembur, Mumbai, as a man’s violent assault on a woman and her daughter ends in tragedy.
Mumbai, September 22, 2023 – In a shocking incident that has sent shockwaves through the Chembur community in Mumbai, a 30-year-old man allegedly attacked a woman and her teenage daughter with a knife before taking his own life. The incident occurred on the evening of September 21, 2023, at 8:45 PM in Saibaba Nagar, Chembur.
According to reports from the Mumbai Police, the assailant, identified as Rahul Nishad, who worked odd jobs in the local market, entered the 35-year-old woman’s residence, locking the door from the inside. He then launched a brutal knife attack on the woman, causing severe injuries to her chest, neck, and hand.
The victim’s 15-year-old daughter bravely intervened, attempting to shield her mother from the assailant’s fury. Tragically, she also sustained knife wounds to her neck and hand during the struggle. Nishad was heard threatening to harm both victims as they desperately fought back. In a moment of sheer terror, the mother and daughter managed to open the door and escape.
The horrific incident took a tragic turn when Nishad, after the failed assault, turned the knife on himself, resulting in his own demise.
The motive behind this brutal attack remains unclear. Nishad was known to the woman’s family, as he had frequently visited their home during the pandemic to share meals. However, he had not been seen there for the past few months, leaving investigators puzzled about the sudden act of violence.
Fortunately, the woman and her daughter were rushed to a nearby hospital after the woman’s husband was alerted to the incident. Both victims are now reported to be out of immediate danger.
The Mumbai Police have charged Nishad with attempted murder, while a case of accidental death has been registered in connection with his suicide.
In a separate incident, a 42-year-old woman was found murdered in her home in Thane district, with suspicions pointing to her husband as the possible culprit. The woman, believed to have been killed with a laundry bat, was discovered on the night of September 21, 2023. The police are actively searching for her husband, who is considered a suspect in the case.
These incidents serve as a grim reminder of the need for heightened vigilance and community support to prevent such tragedies from occurring in the future.
