The lifeguard does not know the reason behind stabbing as he was on the duty and since it was raining outside he was sitting inside the ‘tower’ (shelter provided to them by department). According to the lifeguard when he tried to inquire with the accused lady about the reason behind her carrying the knife she narrated saying that the same is kept for her own safety but when the police asked her the same question she changed her version and said that the knife is for cutting the fruits.

While in conversation with media the lifeguard stated that the accused lady saw the victim lady roaming on the beach alone and she went towards her with the knife in her hand. The victim lady got panicked looking at the knife and told the accused that she does not have any valuables with her and that not to hurt her.
Name of the accused lady is revealed as Nina Yadav Akadi and the victim’s name is Sanju according to the sources. When the incident took place the victim lady was on her morning walk on the beach said the sources. The accused had stabbed Sanju on her abdomen that was quite deep said the lifeguard.
The victim lady Sanju was soon shifted to the hospital after her first aid by a lifeguard. Since the wound was deep doctors had to put 5 to 6 stitches on it said the sources.
