A highly-educated Toronto woman has been charged with attempted murder following an unprovoked stabbing.

Rohinie Bisesar allegedly approached a young woman at a drug store Dec. 11 and plunged a knife into her body. She was arrested Tuesday.

The 40-year-old briefly appeared in court Wednesday morning to face charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon.

Just before her arrest, the National Post received an email, allegedly from Bisesar, confessing to the stabbing.

“I am sorry about the incidence,” the email read.

“I felt the need to be extreme to see if it would work. I would normally not do such a thing.”

A friend confirmed that the email came from Bisesar’s personal address, but could not confirm if she had written it.

Rohinie Bisesar has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon.after allegedly stabbing a woman at a Toronto drugstore.

The stabbing took place in the heart of Toronto’s financial district, at a Shopper’s Drug Mart in the underground PATH system. The unidentified victim suffered life-threatening injuries, CBC News reported.

Bisesar’s lawyer, Calvin Barry, said his client has an "impressive resume," including a Masters in Business Administration.

"People have commented that they're shocked and taken aback by this, and this is not her demeanor," Barry told CTV News.

"She's been basically a deer in the headlights because it's all happening so quickly."

The email sent to the National Post went beyond her apparent confession.

"Do you know any top professionals in artificial intelligence, biotechnology, nanotechnology, satellites? Maybe Military. Maybe Government?" it read.

"Something has been happening to me and this is not my normal self and I would like to know who and why this is happening.

"There is either a single person or more responsible and who and why would be nice to know."

Friends described Bisesar as "sweet but odd," noting that she had struggled to hold down a job in recent years.

One friend, Karl Gutowski, said that that her mental health had deteriorated recently and she was hospitalized in 2014. He said she became detached from family and appeared paranoid.

Bisesar is co-operating with police and is expected to return to court on Friday.

The woman look like she couldn't kill a fly. Go ahead Nehru.   

She looks like Miss America Nina Davuluri. My heart goes out to both families.

Joke aside. Two families are grieving and you're right to bring the down side of the story. It is sad, indeed. 

Gilly, you are so right - mental illness is no joke in North America. That being said the entire situation is so sad. The victim, from the Scarborough area, recently got married and bought their own home. She is also the sister-in-law of a friend of mine. This is really hard.

Really hard indeed to lose a loved one in such a manner. My condolence to the victim's family.

Dunno whatdafk that supposed to mean as per my post.

Anyway, some folk said they've seen her sitting at a table in a mall open restaurant with her laptop and wearing the same clothing.

Sounds pretty unstable to me. Pretty and unstable.

So why do you go around cussing people or expressing their opinions? What does that make you?

What is it that messed up your mind?  Is that legal dope?

A woman facing a first-degree murder charge for allegedly stabbing a stranger to death in the underground PATH system in downtown Toronto has fired her second lawyer, eleven months before her trial is set to begin.

Rohinie Bisesar, 41, is accused of randomly attacking Rosemarie Junor, 28, on the afternoon of Dec. 11, 2015 in a Shoppers Drug Mart beneath the Toronto-Dominion Centre, a short distance from where Junor worked as a medical technician.

At a court appearance Wednesday morning, Bisesar informed Justice John McMahon she wanted to fire her lawyer David Connally.

She made the request through a letter directly to the judge, which McMahon told her not to do in the future.

McMahon urged Bisesar to hire another lawyer as soon as possible, and that if she did not, he would appoint a lawyer to act as a “friend of the court” to ensure her rights are being safeguarded.

In a long speech that swung between calm statements, shaking sobs and urgent pleas, Bisesar reiterated her belief, previously shared with the court, that there is something nefarious inside her, controlling her body, and that she needs to have her body scanned.

“I’m not responsible for this. I’m a good person. But there is something interacting with me,” she told the court, adding that she is also a victim.

At one point, she expressed doubt that Junor was actually dead.

McMahon flatly assured her it was it was an indisputable fact.

Crown prosecutor Beverley Richards told the court she will be bringing an application for Bisesar to undergo a psychiatric assessment focused on criminal responsibility at the next court appearance on Monday.

Bisesar said she would oppose such an assessment and repeatedly denied having a mental illness.

She was found fit to stand trial last May, shortly after she fired her first lawyer Calvin Barry.

She also asked McMahon to move her from the Milton jail where she is being held.

McMahon said she would need to make a formal application to the court, but ordered the jail to look into her claims that 300 pages of her notes were stolen and that she is being denied appropriate clothing, water, food and basic hygiene.

He also ordered that she be permitted to use the phone to contact potential lawyers.

Outside the courthouse Junor’s older brother Richard told reporters that he is happy a trial date has been set and the case is moving forward.

“It’s been a trying time for all of us,” he said. “It’s just devastating to know she’s gone . . . but she’s looking down on us.”

Bisesar’s trial is scheduled for Jan 8, 2018.
