According to the police, Nair had a heated argument with a man named Aslam Hashmi from the same locality, who was causing a drunken ruckus in the area on Sunday. The tiff escalated into a physical fight.

“On Monday evening around 7:30pm, when Nair was coming back from work, he was cornered by Hashmi on the skywalk that led to his home. The accused stabbed the victim with scissors right in the stomach. Despite sustaining a deep gash, Nair called a friend to the spot,” said an officer from Vile Parle. The friend immediately arrived, taking Nair to a government hospital where he is currently admitted.

Due to the severity of the injury, the hospital authorities reported the incident to the police. A case has been registered under sections 307 (attempt to murder), 504 (intentional breach of public tranquility), and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code. The accused Hashmi is currently in police custody.
