New York's Chautauqua - Author Salman Rushdie, whose works received death threats from Iran in the 1980s, was stabbed in the neck on Friday while delivering a lecture in Western New York. The attacker stormed the stage.

The Chautauqua Institution hosted the occasion where the 75-year-old Booker Prize laureate was speaking.

A man suspect allegedly went up onto the platform and attacked Mr. Rushdie and an interviewer, according to the New York State Police.

According to the police statement, Rushdie "suffered an apparent knife wound to the neck."

A bank fixed deposit is considered a comparatively safer than equity or mutual funds choice for investing in India.

About an hour later, New York Governor Kathy Hochul revealed at a press conference that Mr. Rushdie was still alive.

He was transported by helicopter to a nearby hospital, but the extent of his wounds is still unknown.

Henry Reese, the interviewer, also experienced a mild head injury.
