Abu Salem stabbed by Dawood aide in jail, now stable
In a security lapse that has unnerved officials, mafia don Abu Salem was attacked Saturday with a sharp instrument inside the Arthur Road Central Jail, allegedly by Mohammed Dossa, a member of absconding mafia don Dawood Ibrahim's gang.

Quote:Following a scuffle that broke out between them inside the jail premises, Dossa attacked Salem with a sharpened spoon during breakfast time this morning, injuring Salem in the face and neck.

Bleeding profusely from the neck and shoulder, the 43-year-old Abu Salem was rushed for treatment by a jail doctor and he is reported to be stable.

A top home ministry official described the incident as 'minor' but said that the jail authorities would initiate 'appropriate security measures' to prevent recurrence in the future.

The attack took place in a common area where all prisoners are allowed to come out in the high security jail precincts.
