TV Actress Malvi Malhotra was stabbed in Versova, Mumbai on Monday night for allegedly refusing a marriage proposal from a producer. A man identified as Yogesh Kumar contacted Malvi on Facebook a few months ago. He initially offered a project to Malvi and they both met at a cafe to discuss the same. However, he then proposed to Malvi and asked her to marry him. Malvi said ‘No’ to the proposal but Yogesh Kumar kept following her. According to Malvi’s guardian, Yogesh didn’t only spam her on social media, but also followed her when she stepped out of her apartment.
On Monday night, Yogesh asked Malvi to sit in his car. When Malvi refused, Yogesh stabbed her in the abdomen with a knife. She has been hospitalised and is recovering currently. An FIR under sections 307 (attempt to murder) and 354 (assault or criminal force to a woman) has been registered.
Malvi has asked Kangana Ranaut to help in this case. While admitted to the hospital, Malvi said in a video that they both hail from the same state. While Kangana is from Manali, Himachal Pradesh, Malvi is a Mandi resident.
