New Delhi: Two women studying medicine were critically injured here on Saturday after a fellow male student who lived with them but had been asked to leave stabbed them following a row, police said.

The three, in their early 20s, lived in Gautam Nagar in south Delhi. They had apparently returned from abroad and were preparing for a Medical Council of India examination.

Two or three days back, they fought over some issue after which the women asked the man to leave their house, a police officer said.

On Saturday morning, the man returned to the house and stabbed the unsuspecting women when they opened the door.

The women were taken to a hospital where their condition was initially said to be critical. "The cause of the incident will be known after talking to the women. We are trying to trace the man," the officer said.
