The accused, Yogesh Mahipal Singh, had met Malvi a couple of times before the incident took place on the pretext of being a producer. After which, he pressured the actress to marry her. However, after she rejected his proposal, Yogesh attacked her thrice with a knife.
He allegedly stopped her on the way and questioned her why she stopped talking to him. This reportedly led to a heated argument and he stabbed the actress on the abdomen and on both hands. He later fled from the spot.
The actress was then rushed to the Kokilaben hospital, where she is currently undergoing treatment. Her condition is said to be stable now.
“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.
The cops have got hold of the CCTV footage of the area and have also gained crucial information about Singh from the same.
