The Government Railway Police (GRP) have arrested a 39-year-old man for trying to kill a school headmaster at Dombivli in Maharashtra's Thane district by stabbing him multiple times, an official said on Wednesday.

Senior inspector Kiran Undre of the Dombivili GRP said the accused, identified as Shakil Humayun Sheikh, caught hold of the 56-year-old victim when he was walking along the tracks near the Kharbao railway station and asked him why he was not completing the service record of his wife who worked in the same school at Bhiwandi.
