The Nehru Nagar police arrested a 40-year-old man for allegedly attacking a 37-year-old woman with a blade on Monday.

The police said that the accused, Shivaji Kamble, was frustrated that his son was arrested for raping the victim’s daughter. The police have arrested the accused and the woman is admitted in the hospital.

The police said that the incident took place on Monday evening, after the accused saw the woman near her Kurla residence and attacked her on the face and neck. The police have registered a case of attempt to murder against the accused and detained him.
