BLOODY: Crime scene INVESTIGATING: Phadi (inset)

Police are investigating a case in which a 20-year-old University of Botswana (UB) student was stabbed by her boyfriend with a sharp object yesterday.

It is alleged that the two, who are both UB students, had an argument after the suspect accused the victim of cheating on him.

After stabbing the girl, the suspect is said to have attempted to commit suicide by stabbing himself with a knife on the neck.

Central Police Station Commander Superintendent Mothudi Phadi confirmed the incident and said the two were both admitted at Princess Marina Hospital.

He said investigations are ongoing to establish the cause of the incident.

Phadi said they are yet to register both the victim and the suspect’s statements.
