In a rather dramatic incident that happened at the CMBT close to the dawn on Saturday, a woman chased down and stabbed another woman, who was seated at a terminal with her husband.

Sources said that the attacker was having an affair with the victim's husband. According to the Times of India, J Priya, of Arumbakkam was friends with Muniyammal, of Virugambakkam. Muniyammal was married to one Karthik, and was reportedly waiting at the CMBT with him when the incident occurred.

Priya, who had taken an auto-rickshaw to CMBT, found the couple there close to 3 am. They had a conversation and the two women began arguing soon. Priya allegedly whipped out a knife and stabbed Muniyammal in the neck. The lady, who was severely injured, was taken to the Kilpauk Medical College, where she had to have nearly 12 sutures.

The Koyambedu police registered a case and arrested Priya, who was remanded into judicial custody.
