Man injured, dies after meeting with internet date

A 25-year-old Melbourne, Australia, man has died after meeting up with a woman he met on a dating app.

It is believed that Maulin Rathod went to meet up with a 19-year-old woman around 9 p.m. July 23 at a house in Sunbury, where he was later found by emergency services with life-threatening injuries, The Age reports.

He was taken to a hospital in critical condition, and later died.

A friend of Rathod’s described him as a “very nice person” with a “very humble personality.”

Rathod’s cousin Neeraj Chavada said their family couldn’t believe what happened.

“He was such a kind soul. He had so many friends. He was empathetic and would rush to help even if he had known the person only for a day,” Chavada told SBS Hindi.

According to The Age, a woman has been charged with intentionally causing serious injury, but these charges could be upgraded.

She appeared in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday night and was remanded into custody.
