College student survives sickle attack by Stalker -Times of India

14 October Hyderabad

An engineering student who was being stalked and sexually harassed by another student, was attacked by him with a sickle. She survived the attack, though her attacker died after consuming poison. The newspaper link below reports this as the crime of  “jilted lover,” which unfortunately is still the language used for stalking and sexual harassment in India, and needs to change fast!
