A 22 year old Manipuri tourist was stabbed to death and her friend left in a critical incident, after a seemingly mentally deranged man attacked them with a knife at Mumbai's throbbing Gateway of India on Saturday evening.
Leisha Choan and Ngakuim Raony, both from Manipur, were spending time at the Gateway feeding pigeons at around 6 pm when the youth, identified as Uzer Patel, pounced on them from behind and slit Leisha's throat with a knife.
