The woman, who suffered injuries in the stomach and on the face, managed to hail an auto-rickshaw and reached the Kalwa Civil Hospital, the inspector said.

A case of attempt to murder under Indian Penal Code section 307 (attempt to murder) was registered against Kumar and police were searching for him, the official added.
