Rachit who is separated from his wife also abused Harshad for talking to her. When Harshad protested, Rachit took out a knife and stabbed Harshad in the chest and stomach several times over.
Harshad was admitted to the ICU ward of a private hospital and could not be saved. Bopal police have booked Rachit Thakor who is on the run for an attempt to murder.
