A woman lawyer was stabbed to death at the Karnataka High Court in Bangalore on Thursday. Her assailant, reportedly her colleague at the court, is being treated at a city hospital after attempting suicide.

According to the eye witnesses, Rajappa attacked Naveena, 25, in court corridor, who bled to death. After the attack, Rajappa stabbed himself in the neck.

It is reported that both Rajappa and Naveena were advocates at the High Court and belonged to the same home district Kolar.

The court was later adjourned for the day. It is the matter of investigation as to how despite security arrangements Rajappa managed to sneak in a weapon inside the court premises.
