One person was confirmed dead after multiple stabbing incident during rush hour in the Australian city of Melbourne, police said on Friday, as the city was placed on lockdown.

As they got out of the auto, they were confronted by a male brandishing a knife and threatening them. Hindustan Times, owned by HT Media Ltd, is one of India's largest publications that provides unbiased news, analysis and features on politics, sports, entertainment, lifestyle and more. He also died from his gunshot wound in hospital.

"He's known to police mainly in respect to relatives that he has which certainly are persons of interest to us, and he's someone that accordingly is know to both Victorian police and the Federal intelligence authorities", he said.

The man, whom police say had been on their counterterrorism radar already, set a vehicle on fire in the city to attract a response and then began swinging a knife wildly.

Ashton said the three victims, all men, and the suspect were transported to the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
