Youth stabbed after picnic row

Trouble between two youths over a pair of broken sunglasses, which began on December 31, culminated in a stabbing on Tuesday at Zakirnagar in Mango police station area.

Raj Mukhi (20) suffered multiple stab injuries and was rushed to Tata Main Hospital, where his condition is stated to be serious.

According to his relatives, Raj, a resident of Bhalubasa in Sitaramdera, had gone to Dimna for a picnic along with his neighbourhood friends on December 31.

During the picnic, he had taken a pair of sunglasses belonging to his friend Belu to wear. However, the glasses broke, triggering tension between the two.

The relatives said Belu (20) assaulted Raj at the picnic itself, but calmed down after friends intervened.

“As relations between the two were strained, some friends tried to reconcile the two by holding a meeting on January 5. But Belu refused to forgive and forget,” said one of his relatives.

On Tuesday around 9am, Belu went to Zakirnagar Road No 14, where Raj used to work in a residential colony. He first tried to beat up Raj, but was stopped by local residents.

“At 11.30am, while Raj was cycling to a nearby place, Belu intercepted him and stabbed him repeatedly. The assailant left the place only after Raj collapsed in a pool of blood,” said the relative.

Belu escaped on his bike.

According to hospital sources, Raj sustained as many as eight stab injuries and his condition was extremely serious as he had lost a lot of blood.

Inspector H.C. Majhi of Mango police station confirmed the incident.
