Not paid for 2 months,help stabs employers

Goregaons Scriptwriter Couple Critical 

A20-year-old domestic help was arrested on Sunday for allegedly attempting to kill his employers,a couple from Goregaon.
The victims,Ashok Basak (34),and his wife,Parmeshwari (30),both scriptwriters for Bhojpuri films,have been hospitalized with critical injuries.The accused,Narendra Kajal,told the police that he had not been paid for two months.This coupled with the fact that Ashok would often rebuke him,drove him to commit the act,he told cops.
Kajal,originally from Sonpath in Haryana,was hired by the Basaks three months ago.Every day,he would come to their rented home in Goregaon early in the morning and leave around 10pm.It has been four years since the couple moved into the house at Motilal Nagar-I in Goregaon (W); while they occupy the first floor,their landlord,Jodharam Solanki,stays on the ground floor with his family.The Basaks have five dogs.
According to the officials,Kajal went to a gurdwara on Sunday morning.Around 10.30am,after he returned,he again had an argument with the Basaks over his salary.A little later,as Ashok went for his bath and Parmeshwari entered the kitchen,Kajal grabbed a vegetable knife and attacked her,stabbing her twice in her stomach and then on her neck,the police said.Alarmed by her screams for help,Ashok rushed out of the bathroom when Kajal slashed him on his neck,hand and face,the police added.Kajal also sustained minor injuries on his hands.With the dogs being tied up,they could not rescue their masters.
We were watching television when we heard Parmeshwari scream.We did not realize what was happening and their door was also locked from inside, said the Basaks landlady Jamuna.They learnt about it only when Parmeshwari,bleeding profusely,staggered down the stairs,leaving a trail of blood behind.
Kajal was still in the house and the neighbours blocked the entrance,to stop him from escaping.He was later handed over to the Goregaon police.
Ashok and Parmeshwari were first taken to Siddharth Hospital and later shifted to Nair hospital.Parmeshwari has been admitted to the trauma ward.She underwent surgery for stab injuries in her abdomen.Her condition is critical, a doctor said.She has sustained injuries to the intestine and her neck bore deep slits.The couple have lost a lot of blood.
We are yet to record their statement, said a police official,adding that they suspected that Kajal had consumed drugs on his way back from the gurdwara.Kajal will be produced before a metropolitan court on Monday.When hired,Kajal was not registered with the local police,despite campaigns initiated by the cops asking employers to get their domestic helps verified.

On Sunday,after a fight over his pay,Kajal stabbed Parmeshwari in her stomach and on her neck.When Ashok tried to help her,he slashed him on his neck,hand,face Kajal was not registered with the police despite a police campaign for it.A drive to register domestic helps,watchmen and drivers was started by the police in Zone 11 (Dahisar West to Goregaon West) and Zone 9 (Jogeshwari West to Bandra West) last year.Forms were given out to residents so that cops could have details on every staffer employed by a housing society.

Kajal told cops he was driven to the act as he had not been paid for two months and Ashok would often rebuke him
