Nagpur: In a bizarre incident, a 22-year-old man entered the apartment of a bank manager and attempted to end his own life by self-inflicted stab wounds near Dinanath High School in Dhantoli area. The man reportedly died at a hospital.

Mona Kumar Rishu Singh (39), residing in Agni Apartments, witnessed the harrowing event recently when a stranger entered her house and stabbed himself with a sharp-weapon and also ransacked her house without any prior contact with her. The man succumbed to the injuries in the hospital, a local media report claimed.

According to the police, the accused, identified as Shankar Bhima Dhurve (31), from Vasantrao Naik Slum, allegedly barged into Singh’s residence without permission.

In a terrifying action, Dhurve reportedly grabbed a knife from the kitchen and caused panic among the residents. Mona managed to retrieve the knife from him, while her daughter seized a pan. The family then rushed out for help and called the watchman and a driver.
